We headed to Skirball basically just to beat the heat as it was over 107 that day. Unfortunately there were no exhibits when we visited (just the permanent exhibit and Noah's Ark) so there wasn't much to do, but we did very much enjoy the permanent exhibit on Jewish Heritage and the well done spaces throughout. A quick pop into... More

We didn't really see much other than Noah's Ark and the "Snowy Day" exhibit but those were both nice. Unfortunately we had to cut our visit short so I don't know what else was there.

The Skirball Center has art and theater available for your enjoyment. An alternative to the Getty or downtown LA.

During our visit with family in LA, we experienced a hidden family treasure - the Skirball Cultural Center. It was a very pleasant surprise. Our grandchildren (ages 6,4 and 1) loved it. I guarantee that they will be happy and content in the hands-on activities and programs. The two storied Noah's Ark room is a favorite! Adults will also enjoy... More

I attended the Haden Triplets evening recently and my response is very conflicted. The artists were phenomenal. The space is beautiful and comfortable. I also had the dinner beforehand and it was delicious. But the acoustics and the audience and staff behavior was kind of appalling. People in the audience seemed to think they were in their own backyards and... More

Went on a Friday Afternoon, No issue with parking, very professional and helpful staff and security officers. The place is quiet and peaceful. Lots of history. Lots of art exhibits. Learned a few things such as Levi Strauss beginning and what Spain did to the Jewish People in 1492. The grounds were beautiful. I would love to come back for... More

We took the kids (1,4, and 5 years old) for a visit and everyone had a good time on our first visit. Finding the center was very easy since it is located right off the freeway. Free parking which is always a plus. All of the workers were very helpful and friendly. We spent a half day here and ended... More

It was a lovely place to spend most of the afternoon. Exhibitions: Noah's Ark is great for kids, Ezra Jack Keats' illustrations were great fun - certainly puts a smile on anyone's face. Noah's Ark has a lovely 2-room playground for the kids. The sandwiches & salads on offer were also very delicious and you could sit outside by the... More

Took in the Noah's Ark exhibit recently at the Skirball---wonderful and enthralling for people of all ages...plus the museum itself is engaging, featuring a changing roster of interesting exhibits. Another bonus: the cafeteria is attractive and the portions hearty, a rarity for museum based dining.
