Noah's Ark is AMAZING

We visited here with a passionate local and we were definitely not disappointed. The Bill Graham exhibition was amazing, Noah's ark was delightful and the standing exhibition was extremely interesting. The architecture of the building was also worth viewing.

The ultimate promoter!! The Skirball is a Jewish Cultural Center. The first part of the exhibit focuses on his early life. He was Jewish, born in Berlin January 8, 1931. His father died 2 days after he was born. He was fortunate to leave Nazi Germany. He was sent to France where he ended up between the front lines after... More

There was a great exhibit on Bill Graham and rock n roll through the 90's. The facility is large but manageable. It wasn't crowded because I don't think it is as well publicized as some of the other attractions.

From the introductory exhibit on the art of music billboards in LA and how they were created to the full range of info in the Bill Graham Rock and Roll Revolution exhibit........fascinating! As a teen during the 60's, seeing this retrospective pulled so much together in better understanding the music groups of the time period. The show gives us an... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 small kids) visited the Skirball Cultural Center today while in L.A. visitng my parents. From what I hear, this Center is not very well known among tourists to this area, but it sure is a hidden gem, especially for kids. The parking here is free, but there is an admissions fee (US$10...

We recently went with our family- kids aged 1,3,6 and 8. Everyone had a wonderful time. This is an inexpensive and educational exhibit that exceeded our expectations. We booked our time for a Friday at 2pm and it was virtually empty. The 2 hour time slot was the perfect amount of time. The staff were fun, interacting with the kiddos... More

This Center celebrates the Jewish faith, and while there are wonderful and inspiring exhibits from the past, the Center stays current as well, with a great exhibit about Bill Graham and Rock n' Roll. You can also feel how much the Center participates in the LA community.

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
