The king tut exhibit was great here. We got the audio tour and it made it really interesting. Too many people though, but great places to eat all around LA. Just next door is the La Brea Tarpits, go see that too on the way...More

Exceptionally surly staff. Poor layout. Disorganized and badly curated exhibits. Are you sure you want to visit LACMA? If you are an art geek, you will probably find yourself at LACMA during a visit to Los Angeles. Or perhaps you will be lured over by...More

The collection here is very good- there will be a piece by most artists you would expect/hope to see in a modern art collection, plus a few unknowns- but it is an expensive place. $25 entry if you're not a California resident, plus $16 parking,...More

What a great use of art. From the elevators for the parking garage to the open community spaces in the buildings. Special exhibits were very well done. The permanent installations were lovely.

In terms of what´s on display at the LACMA, the most recognizable piece is unquestionbably the Urban Light sculpure. The most Instagrammed thing in L.A!

Well, when i visited the place a few months ago the gate person charged me $14. And if you are local with a valid identification you will get additional discount. Can't understand why some people paid $25.

Park along the street right infront of the lights. Take a picture and leave. Cars won't bother except for the Metro Bus.
