Amazing architecture finally in L A My favorite is the exterior & grand side stairway, upper garden terrace, hidden pathways & outdoor amphitheater. The store is filled with great design for all ages & interests. Lovely place for date night or meeting friends. Getting an annual or series pass is worth every penny !!!

this is a great place to walk around and look at the amazing architecture, but a very difficult place to hear the wonderful music if you are tall...over 6'3...as the seating is not very comfortable

So wonderful to have this Frank Gehry masterpiece in the city of LA. Be sure to walk around the block and admire this beauty from every angle. Then go inside and take a tour of the concert hall. Hopefully you will have a chance to enjoy a concert and experience the amazing acoustics of this wondrous place.

I have been fortunate enough to see some really amazing concerts at this venue. It's easy to grab a light dinner, the book and souvenir shop is fun to browse in as is people watching around the bar. The acoustics and aesthetics of the Concert Hall are some of the best in the world. To give you an example of... More

We went to the Christmas carol sing -a- long and we had an amazing time. It is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. The entire family enjoys the day. The seats are comfortable and the visibility is good from most areas of the theater.

Cosi fan tutee on an inflated stage. Orchestra was great, singers were OK. Seat in side balcony was uncomfortable with very little leg room. Recommend orchestra or back balcony.

Having arrived between the docent-guided tours, it was nice to avoid the 45 minute wait before the next one began and take a self-guided tour. A very impressive tour detailing the founding of the hall, some of the philanthropists who donated to it's creation and endurance, and its history. This was a very informative stop.

If you are in to architecture make sure the Walt Disney Concert Hall is on your list. I was surprised at how much time I spent there, not at a performance, just wondering around the building itself. There is a great self-guided audio tour about the design and construction of the concert hall. Well worth taking. It was a nice... More
