Had been to the old museum some years ago and wanted to see what had changed. The museum is easy to get to, we were driving but could see that it was serviced by public transport. The LA zoo is directly opposite and the place was busy. The museum has art galleries as you go in and if you like modern western artists , then you can see some excellent work on display. The exhibitions are very good and we quickly ran out of time only managing to see about half before it loses at 4.00, thought that we could get through in about 2hrs, you should allow 3-4. There are discounts for seniors, students and teachers, have proof in the form of an ID. Will be going back to see the rest and have a look at the zoo next time.

A very worthwhile visit. Nice location across the road from Griffith Park and near the zoo. Great collection of western and movie stuff.

I happened to hop of the bus and check this place out on a Tuesday afternoon. I think I was the only person in the museum! So Tuesdays are the days to go! Interesting collection..everything from Wyatt Earp's pistol to Michael Jackson's sequin glove to Native American artifacts.

I took my 4/5 class last year and am going again with my 4th graders. Fascinating look at CA history with something for all ages to enjoy.

My Dad and I decided to check out this museum because we have a little bit of time available after we finished touring the Travel Museum. One hour was enough time for us to decide that we would like to go back for a lengthier visit.
