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.

Great art museum, good gift shop, easy parking and access. Great exhibits each year. If you can only afford one cultural outing membership, this is a great choice.

“Fascinating installations and collections, with the Kubrick exhibition a real highlight...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

While the museum is a really very good collection of art from all over the world, it was their temporary exhibitions that provided the most interesting moments of our visit. The Stanley Kubrick exhibition was especially fascinating, and well worth catching if you're in the area. It is worth the extra $5 fee any day.

“Kubrick exhibit was excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

It was great to see what he envisioned through his creativity and the length he went, without technology, to create. He likely had a great deal to do with what we are accustomed to now. He sketched a laptop in 1968!

“A true Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I'm always fascinated about the diversity of exhibitions, the quality how they are curated and presented and how you can come back here over and over again and always find something interesting and new. For somebody who enjoys art it's simply uplifting and the summer outdoor music program, offered in the park, is not only free, but also good.
