Owner description: Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes 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. A museum of international stature as well as a vital part of Southern California, LACMA shares its vast collections through exhibitions, public programs, and research facilities that attract over a million visitors annually, in addition to serving millions through digital initiatives, such as online collections, scholarly catalogues, and interactive engagement online. Situated in Hancock Park on over 20 acres in the heart of Los Angeles, LACMA is located between the ocean and downtown. With this much to explore, we encourage you to spend an entire day with us, delving deep into the work of your favorite artists, taking a free tour, catching a film or concert, or just letting your curiosity lead the way.

“Interesting museum”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I liked the ancient collections, but dislike very much modern collection of the museum. And not because I do not like modern art. I like it if it's done with the talent and not just pretend to be talented. But almost all collection of modern art in this museum was represented artist without any sign of talent.

“A museum worth visiting”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Many museums are stuffy, extended encless isles with boring art. This is not the case for the LA County Musuem of Art! Due to an totally involved staff and curator the isles are alive with information, presentations and creativity explaining the variety of paintings, sculptures and items. The interaction between viewer and the art is the key, and well worth a visit.

“Los Angeles County Museum of Art worth seeing”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We arrived at the museum just in time to join a tour in the European section. The docent who conducted the tour showed us pieces of art that contained themes of mythology and gave an short explaination for each painting . We then went to the special exhibit for Stanley Kubrick’s . It was very well done and very interesting. We had a great time.

“Nice Museum”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

My son wanted us to go to LACMA. Now we have been to all the NYC art museums so this one is about the same as those. They did have a special Stanley Kubrick exhibition going on and we paid extra to get into that. If you are a film buff that was worth it.

It was a nice way to spend the day and it's right next door to the La Brea tar pits so we got to see those.

For lunch go outside and cross the street there are about 20 food trucks thatl ine the street. with all different kinds of foods.
