Description:

Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)...

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.

How I wangled a ticket, on the day, astonishes me, but I did it and I thoroughly loved the Rain room and LACMA. LA does not sell itself as an Art destination but if you look its all there - magical

The museum is huge, so I suggest you to split your visit on couple days. Come here on Friday night - there is free jazz concert right in front of lantern monument. There is also free classics concert in the building every Sunday at 6p.m.

This was my first visit to this museum complex; there are several floors and buildings. Can easily spend several hours here......the rooms are spacious and well laid out and there are museum workers in each room to answer questions.

This is my second visit this year. Unfortunately just missed the Del Toro exhibit on Living with Monsters, but will catch it in the fall at the AGO in Toronto. Was able to view the Picasso and Diego Rivera exhibit which is very worthwhile. Was visiting LA for the holidays and visited with my adult son. There is something for... More

Never realized that Pablo and Diego had a running dialogue for a number of years, not only a verbal one but a visual duet that brings to life the tremendous talent of these two fine artists. A must see.

I and a few friends traveled here and really liked the paintings. Nothing to dislike about this place. I also liked to how cool the building looked from the inside and outside.
