Great exhibit, and if you're a boomer, you'll remember all the groups, concerts, and what a fabulous producer and promoter he was. And if you've never seen the Noah's Ark exhibit, make sure to check it out - and take your kids or grandkids. They'll love it!

Cultural center and museum...I hadn't been to Skirball for a decade or more. Last time was when I took students on a field trip. The ft was fun and educational. This time we went for the Bill Graham exhibit and it's is terrific. Kinda thought an hour would be enough---two hours later we were finishing and I could return for... More

In late April 2015, I had the privilege of seeing the exhibits at the Skirball Cultural Centre. This is a must-see, when you are in Los Angeles. The Centre is situated right across the freeway, from the American Jewish University. The museum is nicely laid out, and there are a couple of guided-tours each day. It is helpful to phone... More

We went here over the weekend, we specifically went for the Noah's Ark exhibition. This is great for children between 2-7. It is all interactive. This is a great experience for children to learn about history by being involved in the process. I was very impressed by all the different aspects of it and my 4 year old son enjoyed... More

This exhibit requires timed entry tickets to ensure it is never overcrowded, but it is definitely worth the planning. The animals are all made of re-purposes materials, like the tortoise shell made of footballs or the gorilla arms made of tires. They are sturdy and all the kids to play on our around them. There are cargo nets to climb,... More

This is a must see when visiting Los Angeles. The museum is an excellent educational center. Children have their own section for learning and keeps them busy for hours.

I attended the docent tour of "Light and Noir" exhibit, which recounted the journey of emigres who fled Nazi Germany for the refuge of Hollywood, including actors, composers, writers and directors. The tour was well handled, the exhibit clear and informative. I've been to the Skirball to view the permanent exhibit, "Noah's Ark," which is not only fun for the... More
