Overview

Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes over 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art. Among the museum's strengths are its holdings of Asian art, Latin American art, ranging from pre-Columbian masterpieces to works by leading modern and contemporary artists; and Islamic art, of which LACMA hosts one of the most significant collections in the world. A museum of international stature as well as a vital part of Southern California, LACMA shares its vast collections through exhibitions, public programs, and research facilities that attract over a million visitors annually, in addition to serving millions through digital initiatives, such as online collections, scholarly catalogues, and interactive engagement online. Situated in Hancock Park on over 20 acres in the heart of Los Angeles, LACMA is located between the ocean and downtown. With this much to explore, we encourage you to spend an entire day with us, delving deep into the work of your favorite artists, taking a free tour, catching a film or concert, or just letting your curiosity lead the way.

LACMA has something for everyone and offers an entre to art for those who have never considered going to a museum and sophistication in curation of exhibits for long-time museum goers. The addition of City Lights and Levitate Mass brought pieces to LACMA campus which...More

The museum is excellent. We had only two hours to explore. The Picasso paintings are wonderful. The Japanese building was closed. The European arts are excellent. The South America collections are good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Great museum with a lot of really awesome artwork/exhibits. My girlfriend and I visited on a rainy day and was able to kill 3-4 hours there without even realizing. The lights outside were really cool too :)

I expected more from an American city and museum this large. It's outdone by The Getty which also has good art, but also interesting architecture, view of the LA basin and ocean.

The LACMA or Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a must see for art fans on a trip to LA. As a local we often go for special events or just to relax and listen to Jazz on a Friday night.

The museum consists of four separate buildings and each has its own type of art on display from pottery sculpture and painted articles. It was well worth a visit although not free to visit.

I lived in Los Angeles for many years and always enjoyed LACMA. I understand that it's going through a makeover, but no one told me that a good 25 to 30% of the museum would be closed. And the changes that have been instituted since...More
