Excellent exhibit on Bill Graham

Excellent exhibit on Bill Graham. Fun to reminisce on Janis, Jimmy, and Tina. I never knew he was a child of the hollocust and escaped to America. Fascinating exhibit.

This was a very entertaining experience which we would have missed if not for our friends who live in LA. They had an exhibit on Bill Graham and The Rock & Roll Revolution which was very nostalgic. There is also a permanent exhibit on Jewish History that was very informative as well.

I came here with 40 Youthbuild students. Little homies between 16 and 24 who had never seen anything like it. The place is fantastic. As usual my favorite part is the museum store. Parking is a breeze. The staff is warm and helpful.

This is a wonderful place to bring children probably up to the age of 10 years old. For two hours, children from toddlers on can interact with 5 rooms of Ark related activities, making lightening and rain, building the ark, moving a giraffe's head, climbing on the ropes of a boat, playing with dozens and dozens of toy animals, with...

Our church is nearby on Mulholland, so the Skirball is a natural for lunch afterwards. Service is wonderful, menu is delicious. Not crowded. A visit to Noah's Ark is a plus when our grandson is with us.

A fabulous jewish museum off and visible from the 405 freeway to the north of the Getty museum by the pass into the San Fernando valley (where many of the BIG movie studios are located.) Skirball was opened after the Museum of Tolerance and has all kinds of cultural activities going on. I once saw a gorgeous Noha's Ark there... More

Loved the Bill Graham exhibit - highly recommend! Saw quite a lot of pictures of some of my favorite rock performers of the 70's and 80's (Grace Slick was a hottie! and I think it's true what Keith Richards wrote about Mick Jagger's endowments, uh, or lack thereof...). The other parts of this museum / center were also interesting. It's... More

You don't have to be Jewish many unique exhibits. Nice view of the hills too. It is a great way to spend a cloudy day. You will come out smiling
