Located on Wilshire Boulevard just east of Fairfax Avenue in the Miracle Mile district of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the largest art museum in the western United States, attracting nearly a million visitors annually.

NOTE that while the museum has a Wilshire Boulevard address, the easiest access to their parking facility is off 6th Street.

On our visit we spent the majority of our time in the Ahmanson Building, which housed an impressive collection of Picassos as well as numerous paintings by Henri Matisse. We also took in some of the excellent pieces in the Broad Contemporary Art Museum. If you are interested in ethnic art, they currently (summer 2019) have major exhibitions of Islamic, Latin American and Korean art.

Even if you don’t feel like paying to go into LACMA there is one free outdoor exhibit worth seeing, Chris Burden’s “Urban Light,” which has become a very popular spot for Instagram selfies.

The museum grounds were immaculate, the artwork was tastefully displayed and both docents and security officers were there to maintain the proper viewing environment. Our guests visiting from Norway were impressed by LACMA and, as native Southern Californians, we also look forward to future visits.

I had read the review on Trip Advisor - Best Museums in LA. Wanted to see their extensive collection. I drove for over an hour, paid $25 admission and $16 to park. Turns out one building closed entirely and others only open at 30% of regular exhibit space. Not much to see. Over-hyped, over-priced and very disappointing.

A world class art museum sponsored by LA County. You will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of world class art in this unlikely (to the uninformed) art venue.

The exhibits were so varied, from classic to modern. They were all interesting. The light installation was soooooo cool!
