  • Had alot of interesting exhibits. The lights outside were cool. You can see alot of people taking photos and bridal shoots. When it get dark, The lights are nicer 
  • Lugar muito lindo para passear com crianças!! As esculturas externas nos encantaram!! Interessante voltar a noite para tirar foto da Urban Night. 
  • The museum is a great place to spend an afternoon taking in the art in doors or outdoors and also the gardens. Really enjoyed the installations around the museum.

  • The place you want to hang out forever! So many building with different exhibitions in each. And in-between you can relax at a sunny terrace with some coffee, or lemonade, or beer and wine. They have live jazz at the center of the campus, it's absolutely free and you can bring your own food and a bottle of wine. If you are not that into art, you would definitely be afterwards! The gift-shops provides cool stuff and many books on art and architecture, both for those very much involved and those somewhat interested.
  • There are many ways to get free tickets (such as if you're an LA county resident). Take advantage of those! There are also really cool installations that periodically change (e.g. the Rain Room). I recommend visiting a few times as you may not see everything in one day. Come with friends and family!
  • Great museum, a little bit expensive but worth it. Don't miss the special exhibitions. Plenty of options for lunch and early dinner. Also a bar where you can enjoy a drink. Better yet, picnic at La Brea Pits.
  • Beautiful art museum with a wide variety of styles and time periods. I love their featured exhibits, especially the recent Guillermo del Toro exhibit. The staff is always courteous and knowledgeable. The gift shop could be larger, but I just love buying art souvenirs for people.
  • Came here for the Guillermo Del Toro special exhibit and had a great time. Ended up wandering the other exhibits before they closed. Although what I was able to see for the short remaining time I was there wasn't my cup of tea, I still had a good time regardless. The security were very nice and helpful.
