It is a complex museum: Japanese art, modern art, excellent temporary exhibitions. They have movie nights with unique and rare movies.
the Stanley Kubrick exhibit opened a window on the great filmmaker's craft. Enjoyed the on site coffee shop too. LACMA is always worth the trip
I like the area in which this museum is situated. In fact, it is next to my all time fave-the Page. Don't confuse my remark, the Page is for tar pits, wooly mammoths and LACMA's collections are art. They have great permanent collections, but have featured some of the best traveling shows in Southern California.
An ever-expanding delight. So many different kinds of objects to look at; great traveling shows; permanent collection very interesting; we were up at 1 am to watch "The Rock" - now predominating over the park off 6th Street - come down Wilshire and have facebook photos to prove it.

It is roomy and displays are in great location. The buildings in themselves are wonderful, and the lighting and general ambiance are inspired. So spacious and beautiful. It has such a great modern art collection and it isn't serious and stuffy and serious like the museums in New York. I fell in love with David Hockney's works in this museum
A beautiful collection of all kinds of artwork, but this complex of 7 buildings is overwhelming! Although each piece of art has a placard identifying it, only a few have descriptions about its artist or explaining the work. Plain black coffee, iced tea and a cookie from the cafe was $11, but most museum's cafes are pricey. There were many... More
