“Stylish venue for wonderful music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We were lucky enough to be taken to hear the LA Philharmonic playing at the Hall's 10th Anniversary concert. A beautiful spacious building with lots of glowing golden wood, marvellous auditorium acoustics and outdoor balcony gardens for the interval. Your experience will probably be as good as the programme you hear - ours was wonderful.

“Amazing Venue with Amazing Acoustics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Just to see the amazing achritechture is worth the visit. Any musical performance will prove the true genious of this building. The design delivers amazing sound. It looks so amazing and I did not expect to discover how functional the music hall is designed. Easy parking under the complex nearby.

“Beatiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Would love to go back for the free tour, unfortunately we didn't have enough time. But from the outside, it is a really stunning piece of architecture and close to the art museum. Hope to get back for the tour and to see a concert some day.

“exquisite sound, performances, architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We have been to a few concerts here ove the years and have loved every moment inside and peering at the outside of the building alike. A great LA gathering place. The patina cafe inside is great for a quick bite, and the real Patina restaurant is beautifully done and worth the splurge.

“Beautiful concert hall; free and informative tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We visited the Walt Disney Concert Hall on a Sunday morning. We took the subway to the Civic Center from Hollywood, which was quick, easy, and inexpensive. It was a short walk to the concert hall.

The Walt Disney Concert Hall has amazing architecture. The building is beautifully constructed. Guided tours are offered most days and are free of charge. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable about the hall's construction. The tour took about 45 minutes. It was interesting to learn about the history of the hall and how it was designed and constructed.

As others have noted, you do not get to go in the concert hall. While we were on the tour there was an organist practicing. We were shown a live video feed. It would have been a nicer tour if we actually could have gone in the hall, but I understand that performers need to practice without interruption. The tour was still enjoyable without actually going in the hall as there's so much beautiful architecture to see outside the hall.

Note that tours are not offered every day, and they're only offered a certain times. Check the schedule on the web site before visiting.
