We were walking around the stadium when we were invited in and given a talk about the history of major events and future development ideas. Interesting to see the plaques and stones from other Olympic Stadiums. Thank you.

I've been coming to the LA Coliseum since before the 1984 Olympic Games and have enjoyed many USC games in the venue. It's dated but functional and is OK except for the problem of inadequate women's rest rooms. Fun to visit & relive the glory games of all that's happened here. LA Special Olympics were well done. Parking is insane,... More

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was the site of the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympic Games. The stadium has been in continual use for professional and high school sporting events, as well as other functions. I asked if there was a museum we could go in and visit to see any artifacts of the Olympics, and was told there was... More

Saw a USC game. Nice historic stadium. Took the advice of another reviewer and parked at the Staples Center for $15 and took the train for $3.50 round trip to/from the Coliseum. Avoided all parking and traffic hassles and was right next door to L.A. Live after the game to get drinks and food.

This stadium has hosted two Super Bowls, a World Series, and two Summer Olympics and is loaded with history. This stadium hosts the University Of Southern California Trojans football team, college footballs premier team with the most successful of any school. The field is usually in very good condition and well manicured. The building itself is very old and dated... More

Yes, this is the middle of a not so nice area. However, there are cops EVERYWHERE! I sat in field club so my food and beer was provided as a part of the ticket. I loved this historic venue. I loved sitting near USC's band. Simply awesome!

We went here or the Special Olympics opening ceremony and it seemed close to capacity. The seats were normal stadium seating and the view of the stage at one end good. Facilities such as bathrooms, concessions etc were all normal and as expected. I gave it a very good for its ability to handle a very large crowd but it... More

What a nightmare. USC, which now owns the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, was responsible for Event Operations. Not only were there not enough gates open, not only were there not enough Security Staff checking bags and running people through metal detectors, the Security Staff did not check the bags! That's right, I could have had a gun or explosives in... More
