    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.

    Decided to call in after shopping. Easy to park inside which costs $21. Entrance was about $30 for both of us. 3 floors of great cars.
    We seen the Delorean which was in all BTF films, amazing to see. Also starsky & hutch car and ghostbusters car. Some great 007 cars in there all original. Worth 90 mins of anyones day.

    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.

    Interesting building inside and out - sweeping curves of metal on the exterior makes for a striking aesthetic. Worth a visit and the self guided tour was informative. Shame the main hall was closed at the time of our visit.

    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

    Beautiful Victorian interior atrium space. It's a working office building so you cannot take the open cage elevators up - just admire the architecture.

    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.

    Great place to shop. Almost all big names are there and many factory outlets as well. I feel food places were very limited and had long queues.

    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

    This library was built in 2 stages; the older is worth exploring for its architecture and design but the newer is less interesting. There are walking tours nearby that can teach about the history, so they're definitely worth taking to make the most of visiting this space. Make sure you check out the children's section - it's the most interesting room.
