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.

The temporary exhibits tend to be a bit more unusual and interesting than the standard art museums. The subject matter are a little more quirky and fun than... More

I went here. I'm Asian American and almost everyone else was white with the exception of some security guards who appeared to be black. I don't think they are use to seeing minorities up here. They seemed to be totally scared of a 5 foot 4 inch Asian American and I'm quite normal looking. They seemed to be extra "vigilant".... More

While visiting family in Los Angeles, we visited the Skirball Cultural Center for their Noah's Ark exhibit. What a great exhibition and venue. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the Noah's Ark exhibit was all hands-on for the small children and grown-ups alike. They also had a Baseball Exhibit that we did not have time to check out... More

It's a personal journey for them every time they do a tour, you can see their pain. The speaker was incredible! Standing ovation!! 👏🏼👏🏼 Ensure you go on a day that there's a... More
