    A must see in L.A. Even if you down want to see any of the exhibitions it is worth going for the views, the architecture of the Center and the feeling of tranquility.

    Beautiful views, some really nice space exhibits, and plenty of things to see while visiting. If you're from out of town or from LA - it's worth the visit. Make sure and bring a mask.

    Great place to visit whether you're a car buff or not. Far superior to my visit to the Ferrari museum.
    The James Bond exhibit was a great experience, especially if you saw any of the movies. All the vehicles he used are there-terrestrial, water, and air. Movie clips, etc.
    Auto lovers, men and women, will enjoy the autos on display, from early models to futuristic concept cars in the main museum.
    I noticed that they have a game room with many games, but I only saw adults in there when I passed by and looked in.
    The "vault" allows you to view -no touching please!-and reminisce about the cars of yesteryear. You'll probably find the car there that your Grandpa or Dad drove.
    You just have to imagine the revving of the engines and the squealing of tires. Really enjoyed this museum!!

    Preserved historic battleship a great addition to the area sites. Be prepared for lots of steps during this tour! Not mobility challenged friendly.

    Stunning building and facilities, housing a collection of modern art. The venue is exceptionally clean, friendly & helpful staff, and a very easy entry/ticketing process.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the art on display during our visit. Definitely worth a visit when you're in DTLA.

    We walked around the area outside the museum to look at the natural tar pits and other exhibits. Loved it..something you do not see in museums. We did not do the museum since we have been to many and they all sorta repeat. So I cannot review their museum.

    On a non-school day, my granddaughter and I visited the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Tickets must first be purchased online, selecting day and time of planned visit. Face masks must be worn at all times, except when eating.
    We also reserved tickets for the "Becoming Jane" exhibit on Jane Goodall. We both enjoyed the exhibit, which included a tent simulating what Jane lived in when she was in Africa. My granddaughter really enjoyed mimicking the chimpanzee's sounds alerting that a snake is nearby. There is a small restaurant to get a snack or lunch and plenty of indoor and covered outdoor seating. The gift shop offers a variety of souvenirs, toys, gifts.

    . Its a little out of the way but well worth the drive. You must make reservations to go into the other building to see where the cool cars are. The music room at the top was great

    The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) located on Wishire Blvd in Beverly Hills is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes well 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.

    Pretty interesting place. A lot of it showcasing stuff before my time which was fairly expected seeing Hollywood has been around for decades but I did really enjoy the basement area with all the horror and thriller stuff. The silence of the lambs area was really cool

    We went to see "I'll Have What She's Having," an exhibit on Eastern European/Jewish delis. It was great, albeit only one room. The permanent exhibits are wonderful (we've been before) but we were disappointed that the Noah's Ark area was closed.

    Masks required, which we appreciated! Easy parking which is SO important in LA (and free).

    Went with an adult child (family not an option below).

    P.S. This exhibit inspired us to try all the delis in the area...more reviews on those to come!

    The Autry is part museum, part Hollywood and captures a time, items and an entertaining quality not often found elsewhere.

    To anyone who's looking to explore the wisdom of the Bhagavad- Gita in an interactive way, I HIGHLY recommend this experience. It literally blew my mind!

    I'm going to be honest: I was expecting the Bhagavad-Gita museum to be... traditional (a.k.a. a little bit boring). I thought I was signing up for an exhibition with a few highlighted verses and a couple pictures of Prabhupada. But no, it wasn't at all like that!

    IT WAS AMAZING!

    The interactive experience you enjoy, while going though every single chapter of this holy book, is just BEYOND. The music, the artistry, the narrator, the play of lights... it takes you through a journey that stimulates all of your senses in the best way possible. And, they make it so simple to understand.

    I felt I learned as much in this museum, as I would have learned taking a Gita class. But with the added element of being wowed by how the story was unfolding!

    If you're just beginning your journey into Bhakti yoga, this museum is a wonderful place to start!
