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.

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.

As any attraction of this type, it's very much a matter of your own personal interests and tastes, but I find that the Skirball is one of the more consistently good visits. 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
