The Skirball hosts incredible exhibitions - photography, architecture, history. It has an extensive venue including a café , auditorium, and open plaza. Exhibits are easy to access and the café is great for a break. The theatre does not have a bad seat.

The artifacts are amazing, and for two adults visiting Noah's ark, we were like children, amazed at the ingenuity and creativity. The Bill Graham exhibit was also nice especially the music listening stations of each artist.

The Skirball is a great museum with beautiful grounds. The travelling exhibit is on music promoter Bill Graham. And a small photography exhibit on the music billboards of Sunset Boulevard highlighted bands of the last 30-40 years. For smaller people the Noah's Ark is wonderful, but so is the archeological dig. Older kids are given more complex questions and get... More

Loved this exhibit - definitely worth the time! Could have spent the entire day, considering all the music options. Definitely recommend this to anyone who might actually know who Bill Graham is.

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
