But the parking was difficult. The collection so so. It's just hard to compete with Getty and others on. Museum Row.

The grounds and museum space are stunning. The staff friendly. The shop fabulous. They carry many handmade and fair trade items. The museum has special traveling exhibits on an ongoing basis that are typically worth visiting. Noah's Ark is a fabulous exhibit...an amazing space for playing with and teaching children. The main exhibit not only teaches much about Jewish history,... More

Not a typical museum about the typical life of Jews in America throughout the centuries. Noah's Ark is worth the admission price alone.

Our friend's daughter got married here. It was a good place for such ocassion. It's a private place that and you feel the eclusivity of high end venue and celebration. The food choice you cater is ok but it depends of course of what you choose and how much money you want to spend.

We went to the Skirball Center last week when my parents were in town visiting, and we all absolutely loved it. The grounds are very pretty and peaceful to walk around, but it's the content of their collections that are so powerful. One of our favorites was their central collection called "Visions And Values" in which they showcase the experienes... More

We had our daughter's wedding at the Skirball this past summer. The staff were accommodating and helpful. The site is one of those all inclusive places where you can have the wedding and the reception following in one place. This is helpful in LA where traffic can be a challenge. We found the costs in line with other places and... More

We did not have a lot of time today but wanted to check out the Moshe Safdie exhibit. There was a 45 minute tour accompanying the exhibit which showed pictures and models of 30 years of Moshe Safdie's work. It was very in depth, very educational and there were about 25 of us in the tour so very popular as... More

This is a great place to visit with kids under 6. The Noah's Ark is fantastic but make sure to get tickets in advance. During summer they have great shows on the weekend for kids.

We've been to a couple of events at the Skirball now and each time we've been so impressed with the exhibits. There is a charming little cafe in the center for lunch so you can go and make a day of it.
