Description:

Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)...

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.

Recently visited the museum, especially to see the Rain Room. The Rain Room requires advance reservations but is a great experience, especially for those with kids. Bring a towel to dry them off. Many great exhibits, the hot wheels car ramp in the Broad building. Also saw the Japanese cultural art exhibit. Good if you appreciate art.

Lots of different buildings housing different genres of art. Loved the Contemporary American Art and of course the amazing Mulholland Drive paiting by Davis Hockney. Shop very disappointing.

It is very hard to top the Getty museums, but our major art museum makes a valiant effort. I always frequented new York's many art museums so I cannot help but go to this one periodically to see what is new. I like the Asian section and some of the classic works but AI am not a fan of the... More

This museum consists of a few separate buildings, which are not connected from inside, so you have to put a visitors’ sticker visibly. It’s a very good museum – some artists are famous and some or maybe the majority are not and you wonder why, as the quality of paintings is no less worse than the world known. There is... More

I haven't been to this museum in twenty years, and it has grown and diversified. This is a compound with multiple buildings. There are cafes and restaurants in the outdoor plaza, and it buzzes with youthful energy. A great place to meet and socialize surrounded by amazing art from around the globe.

We were looking for a way to fit a little culture into our kids' trip to LA, so we stopped by LACMA for a couple hours. Plenty of beautiful and interesting classic masterpieces, but also some modern, fun things for the teenagers.
