Going here was an incredible experience. Although I was hungry for most of it, I enjoyed the special buddhist exhibit they had up when I was there. Admission was free for students...

LACMA 4/16/2006

Going here was an incredible experience. Although I was hungry for most of it, I enjoyed the special buddhist exhibit they had up when I was there. Admission was free for students and so is membership. You can come here to study exquisite art, or just to wander around and wonder in amazement. I have been here only once, I certainly look forward to the next time that I go to LACMA. more

Love IT! 4/13/2006

First of all, I love coming here after I think it is 5 pm and entry to almost all areas is free. They have a beautiful layout and in the Fall there are beautiful Jazz concerts and great specialty nights to wander around with friends or lovers. The visiting art displays are great, and the permanent collections are worth visiting over and over again. I personally just love LACMA on evenings to wind down from a busy week and see some great art. more

Great place for kids 2/24/2006

LACMA has a kids exhibit -- it seems to change every six months or so and is always challenging and engaging for kids. more

Gajin Fujita Rocks 2/1/2006

I went there recently to see the Gajin Fujita exhibit. The more modern art wasn't where it normally would be because of a traveling exhibit that was arriving soon. The price is only five dollars, which is very cheap considering that you could catch a live classical music show at the museum on any given night. more

Who Says LA Lacks Culture 1/16/2006

This museum offers activities for kids, reasonable membership rates (with great perks), free events like classical concerts and outdoor jazz, and even FREE admission--every day after 5pm, and all day on the second Tuesday of each month. So much great entertainment is in our own backyard! more

LACMA is good but not great. 12/19/2005

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a perfectly nice museum and is well worth visiting. That said, it's not really good enough considering we are talking about Los Angeles County. The holdings are interesting, but not spectacular. The programming is good, though, especially the Friday night jazz series in the courtyard and the Sundays Live chamber music series, both free. They attract and curate good exhibitions as well. more

great permanent collection and exhibits. 12/17/2005

LACMA has a very interesting permanent collection. It is one of the biggest museum in Southern California. The interesting part is the exhibits. They often change and have very famous exhibits coming over. Recently they had King Tut which was great! In the evenings, they sometimes have performances, shows... you can check their website for more updated information. The ticket is $9 but every tuesday after 5pm it's free! Worth to go the extra mile for it! more

A wonderful museum 11/11/2005

If a traveling visitor to Los Angeles or a current resident, you should definately visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) at least once. They hold an extensive catalog of fine art and modern art. They also often host special film previews and music concerts. On some nights they also will have jazz performances others will have classical performances. Also at their movie theatre at the museum, they put together many great programs showcasing classic films. Many of these films are nice Tuesday matinees for only two dollars. On the topic of price, the museum does offer free visitation hours everyday after five as well as second Tuesday of each month (for the complete day). I believe parking is free after seven at night. They are just down the street from some other great Los Angeles landmarks, such as the Los Angeles Farmers' Market on 3rd Street and Fairfax. LACMA is located at Fairfax and Wilshire Blvd. It is also adjacent to the famous La Brea Tar Pits. Currently they are hosting the extremely popular King Tut exhibit. It will be gone soon, and other special galleries and/or exhibits will replace it. They are also exhibiting a wonderful collection of the works shared between Cezzane and Pisarro. The museum is quite large and offers a lot to view. Easily a trip to the museum can take up several hours. If you only have time or interest in one museum in Los Angeles, make it the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. more

LA's Museum of Art 9/24/2005

While I never really seem to remember what I see at museums, I do remember when a museum has special events on campus. A couple of events that I have really enjoyed with my toddler daughter is jazz on the courtyard, movie night on the lawn, and painting in the children's wing. The children's section had numerous stations set-up where you can touch sand with moving images, see yourself on screen, draw and paint on small easel boards. But best of all, LACMA has a program where children under 18 get in free with an accompanying adult. So, we will have more than a decade to enjoy this museum over and over again! more

nice art 8/20/2005

A place you should go to visit, open the senses to beauty never a waste of time. Contemporary complex of 5 buildings, very nice and broad exposition with good coverage for every period. The interiors and lay-outs show taste. Was surprised to see it in LA. The art was very beautiful. more

Great Dinosaur Museum 8/19/2005

If dinosaurs are your thing this is the museum to go to. There are many exhibits with the great reptiles showing how they survived back in their period in time. There are also life size replicas that one can get right up to. Several levels make up the museum with flying whales attached to ceilings and escalators. Overall this is a high class museum for the younger kids. more

Another Horrible Museum 8/19/2005

This museum gained a lot of hype simply because many people in the United States are infatuated with King Tut. Unfortunately, this museum tanked on all of its promises. There is no mummy of King Tut nor much new information regarding him. Most of the museum only has random Egyptian artifacts. Also because of 9/11 security is very tight, slows down lines, and they are very rude. more

LACMA 8/17/2005

LACMA's holdings could fill a dozen specialty museums. A labyrinth of galleries showcase strengths of the permanent collection, such as Japanese art, German expressionism, pre-Columbian art and costumes. Touring exhibitions are often surprisingly edgy; it was LACMA, not MOCA, that hosted the Whitney's Mike Kelley retrospective. Other major traveling shows have included a history of the Egyptian pyramids and a high-profile Van Gogh retrospective. Museum admission is free on the second Tuesday of every month. April through December, 5:30pm-8:30pm, on Friday evenings, free jazz concerts are presented on the Times Mirror Central Court plaza. Admission: Adults $9, children (17 and under) free, students/seniors $5 more

LACMA 8/17/2005

Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a well established museum in Los Angeles that has good art pieces and exhibits. There is a cafe that serves light snacks and such but it can be a little pricey. Currently LACMA houses the King Tut exhibit which is the last time the King Tut piece will be in America. more

fun way to spend a day 7/28/2005

LACMA is an awesome way to spend a day. They have a very interesting and eclectic collection, and they always have cool exhibits. It is a collection of several building situated on a pleasant campus, with a nice cafe to grab some dessert or a refreshing beverage. I was just there on Saturday. more

LACMA is gorgeous 7/27/2005

the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is an amazing place: they always have beautiful art on display, and it's a perfect venue to bring a child or a class if you really want to teach them an appreciation for fine art of differing kinds. Right now, they have an exhibit on King Tut and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs which is amazing to peruse. more

LACMA 7/25/2005

Located on Wilshire Boulevard, this place doesn't get much publicity as Museums go, especially with the prominence of the Getty Center, but the LACMA, part of a group of Museums located West and South of Los Angeles is a highlight among Los Angeles' underrated array of Museums & Exhibits. current Highlights include the King Tut exhibit and an excellent collection of art from Asia (Korea, China and the South-Asian sub-continent) in the permanent collection. Notes: Wilshire Blvd is pretty congested and so are the freeways it connects to. You can't avoid this, so just prepare. more
