We went here on a Sunday afternoon. The museum is a few doors down from In n Out. The museum does not have parking, but you can park on the streets around the museum. We parked right in front of In n Out. The museum can seem small when you come in, but it is arranged in a way that... More

This was my second visit and my wife's first. I've never known how to describe this museum. It is odd by normal museum standards. I really just tell people that they have to visit themselves to understand. It is a physically small museum crammed full of mostly small exhibits in small room and corridors. It is two-story (half the building)... More

This museum is pretty weird. I would have to say it might be the weirdest travel experiences that I've had. What they display here is pretty hard to explain. It's weird. It's awkward. And its just feels a little "off" from what you are used to. Probably a cool place to visit if you are the creative type. It is... More

I visited the Museum a while ago with a friend of mine. I'm not sure what I expected, but I was a little ... confused by the randomness of things. Of course, I think that's the point - and, like my title says, it's definitely interesting. The very best (and possibly overlooked part) is the rooftop terrace and tea room... More

Those of little imagination, curiosity or humor should not apply. Go to the beach. For all others, this IS a cabinet of wonders, much along the line of those of the 16th and 17th century, the epitome of which is the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Irony oozes out of many exhibits. The term "eclectic" hardly describes the place. Richard Feynman's... More

I think the premise of the museum is to embrace the unpredictable. No, this museum is not about dinosaurs. What it does have is a beautiful Moroccan cafe that serves tea and cookies upstairs (included with admission). Just go and explore! Perfect place to take a first date! ;)

This quirky creation by a Hollywood model and prop maker is great fun. Don't miss it. Check the times -- it isn't always open and a reservation is a good idea. It is small and can be combined with a meal at one of the good restaurants in the area.

I never quite believed that the Museum of Jurassic Technology was real until I visited it. The museum is a work of art, with gorgeous, meticulously displayed objects and miniatures, and perfect, spooky lighting. The extensively documented exhibits cover a world of offbeat phenomena. Here are just a few: • the mysterious South American Deprong Mori, or Piercing Devil which... More

This is hands down the strangest place I've ever been. There's is all manner of weird stuff in here including art on the eye of a needle, cats cradle making, a room of superstitious remedies.

I feel strangely defensive when I see negative reviews of this place. I spend a ton of time in museums and I won't hesitate to tell you that this is my very favorite. In the world. I flew all the way to LA just to spend my birthday there one year. Am I insane? Maybe. But trust me: it's not... More
