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.

Spacious well presented exhibition space. European and Indian art is exceptional Broad Hall was interesting, although not to my taste. Photography of Los Angeles exhibit is great. Great view of Hollywood hills from mezzanine. Cafe food quite good.

In a city well served by attractions and museums this has to be at the top of the heap. We spent half a day here and visited half of one gallery ... and there are about five depending on whether you count temporary exhibition space. And what a collection, the quality impressed as much as the quantity. Well laid out... More

The exhibits in the galleries are beautiful. They range from ancient to modern art. The traveling exhibits are also amazing. The gardens and out door installations should not be missed.

I am a member so I visit often, there is always something interesting to see, they just made a Turrell exhibit permanent, the lamps at Wilshire always attract a crowd and the Ray's & Stark Bar & Restaurant is delicious!

Truly a pleasant surprise all the times to Los Angeles, never heard of this...was a rainy day (rare) so thought we'd kill some time. Rain or sun, a very interesting sight next to the La Brea Tar Pits. Asian art, current exhibits, classic collections, definitely worth a visit, at least once.

We had been wanting to see the lamp post exhibit for some time and decided to make a day trip of it. There was so much more at this museum that caught our interest in addition to the perfect photo op of the Urban Light display. We enjoyed riding the freight elevator, the family photos of Sultan and other modern... More

Top grade art museum. We were very impressed on the thoughtful way the exhibits were displayed. The range of art exhibited was select but wide. There was a good balance between historical and contemporary art. Plan on spending at least 1/2 day there - we spent 5 hours and did not cover the full museum.

Not much to dislike. It's a laid back environment. Great for even small children. Lots of places to sit and chat, eat and drink with friends and family. There is a place where the kids can paint but it was closed by the time we hit that activity around 5 pm on a Sunday. Latin Jazz Festival going on so... More
