Was there fore the Bin Pho exhibit. A very nicely curated small museum. It has two rooms of changing exhibits and an outside area for demonstrations. Very small but very worthwhile. Good to combine with the La Brea Tar Pits or Museum of Art which are across the street.

Very small museum with 2 floors of gallery space, figure on no more than an hour and a half visit. Your enjoyment quotient of this museum will be based almost entirely on the rotating shows on display. I thought their curator did an excellent job with the Paperworks exhibition but I felt the presentation of Binh Pho's work was a... More

There were 2 great exhibits - shoe design and art from veterans. Both were compelling and involving. Fun gift shop too.

CAFAM just opened its new exhibits. The second floor exhibit is a fantastic shoe collection by artist Chris Francis. He's even set up shop in the front window of the ground level gift shop, where he will be making new creations during the run of the show. Just to give the reader of the review an idea of what this... More

The exhibits on display this month include Iranian digital photography which was disappointing, and some very interesting quilts (I especially liked the quilts made from Heavy Metal T-shirts). The museum is very small, but aesthetically pleasing both inside and out.

This is a little gem of a museum tucked away in the Miracle Mile, we make a point of visiting every time we come to LA on vacation. The exhibitions are always interesting, quirky and inspiring - This is definitely not a corporate experience. The lady in the shop is very nice too.

Go to see Dario Escobar before it closes this month! Escobar takes craft to a new level. Also, don't miss the gift shop. That may sound like trite advice, but if you have birthdays coming up, I think you'll appreciate all the unique items that are for sale. It's also nice to know that you are supporting artists and this... More

I expected to have a good experience in Craft and Folk Art Museum, but I was so disappointed when I came into the museum after spending an hour taking the bus to there. They do have some cool art projects there, but only a few. Anyway, spending one hour there is the most. I guess

This was not my favorite part of my trip. The museum building was wrapped on the front with squares of crochet blocks so therefore I thought it was going to have that kind of exhabits. What I found was an exhabit about human hair and some modern art on Alaska. I was a little disappointed.

This small museum is surprisingly attractive inside. Just across Wilshire from two big L.A. attractions--the La Brea Tar Pits (George C. Page Museum) and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art)--it was easy to add to our museum tour day. We enjoyed two current exhibits, one of stunning glass sculptures and the other of vintage and recent tattoo designs. As... More
