Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes over 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art. Among the museum's strengths are its holdings of Asian art, Latin American art, ranging from pre-Columbian masterpieces to works by leading modern and contemporary artists; and Islamic art, of which LACMA hosts one of the most significant collections in the world. A museum of international stature as well as a vital part of Southern California, LACMA shares its vast collections through exhibitions, public programs, and research facilities that attract over a million visitors annually, in addition to serving millions through digital initiatives, such as online collections, scholarly catalogues, and interactive engagement online. Situated in Hancock Park on over 20 acres in the heart of Los Angeles, LACMA is located between the ocean and downtown. With this much to explore, we encourage you to spend an entire day with us, delving deep into the work of your favorite artists, taking a free tour, catching a film or concert, or just letting your curiosity lead the way.

We spent the better part of a day here next to the Tar Pits. The art was covering a wide gamete of styles and periods. We especially liked the outdoor exhibits of the street lights and the boulder. Good examples of Hispanic art and modern art along with many others. Nice selection of casual restaurants for lunch and a drink... More

The exhibits are spread through a number buildings each with its own style and character. The outstanding one for us was the Japanese purpose built building that echoed the culture and collection inside. Delightfully spacious and windows that look like the typical screens found in Japanese homes. The café serves excellent food made on the premises including bespoke pizza, at... More

I hadn't been to LACMA in years and wow, what a great museum. Incredible, diverse collection, housed in interesting buildings. Don't miss the 50 @ 50 exhibit and the Japanese Pavilion.

I have found LACMA super interesting. I was spoiled living in DC for years, but this museum really works to bring out artists, speakers and deserves the international reputation for excellence.

Great location right by the La Brea tar pits, and interesting garden to walk through with beautiful Calder mobiles. Didn't have enough time to see all the collections but were very impressed by the American one. Beautiful Diebenkorn, Guston and Hockne. Well worth the visit hope to come back

This is a ideal place for young children. First you have to sign them up for NXTGEN. Up until your child is 18 they can go for free with a guest. They also have classes to bring out the lil Picasso in all. Also, the Page Museum(La Brea Tar Pits) is right next door. Now with the actual museum, this... More
