Always busy but the ARK is so amazing its worth it. They usually have a really great temporary exhibit also, we have loved everything we have seen here. Free day gets really busy so its worth it to go another day and pay for your visit.

Great place to take little ones 1-10. There are lots of hands-on activities and nice atmosphere of sharing with other families.

Went on a mid-day to a very uncrowded, free parking, easy to access Jewish cultural center/museum, with a short term baseball exhibit. Lots of great Jewish history and exhibits as well, plus a really well done children's interactive play area (Noah's Ark). Well worth spending several hours here - just down the street from Getty Center.

For my teenage, who loves baseball, this was a fun exhibit, presented in an entertaining, engaging way which wove history in seamlessly.

Tolerance, education and respect for our fellow man are a bit lost these days. Take your family here and embrace the wisdom of this center. It is life changing

We attended the baseball exhibit and I would strongly recommend it. The orange crate replica artwork was particularly interesting. The only problem is small signage which was difficult to read.

A cultural oasis in the Sepulveda Pass, a mile or two away from the Getty Center, the Skirball Cultural Center is a must see visit for tourists and residents alike. From interesting exhibits to concerts to interesting gifts at the gift shop, a trip to the Skirball is highly recommended.

With kid specific exhibits, special exhibits, and the standing collection you could bring anyone and find something that strikes their fancy. With easy parking and few food options it is a great way to spend the day.
