    Top notch art in a top notch contemporary environment. The building is as interesting as the art it holds. Inspiring and well worth a visit.

    Seeing Disney Hall was a priority for us when we visited LA, and it did not disappoint. It's a spectacular Frank Gehry building, with a concert hall that has superb acoustics. It is open to the public almost every day to come in and wander around, using their self-guided audio tours or not. There is a lovely peaceful garden off the third level if you just want to sit and veg out. We were lucky enough to get tickets to an LA Phil concert with Dudamel conducting so had the full experience.

    Stop in and see this beautiful building! It will take you all of 5 minutes but it is worth it. From the outside, you would never think twice about entering but it is worth a peek.

    Although it was just a ride up and down on the hill but took it because of historic significance. It is over 100 years old railway. Only charges $2 for round trip.

    Wish the slide would have been a bit longer. Need to have more of a food selection. Maybe the bar could sell appetizers.

    This library was built in 2 stages; the older is worth exploring for its architecture and design but the newer is less interesting. There are walking tours nearby that can teach about the history, so they're definitely worth taking to make the most of visiting this space. Make sure you check out the children's section - it's the most interesting room.

    Once the biggest building in Los Angeles, the City Hall building still inspires and still serves the great city of Los Angeles.

    A pleasant surprise, I found the exterior unattractive but the interior is overpowering. Great expressions of religious art in a magnificent environment.

    Recently, after reading Wu Zuolai's masterpiece "If You Are Wu Sangui, You Are Not a Traitor, What Are You?", I suddenly understood why Wu Zuolai was willing to be a Traitor. It turns out that he listened to the Wu Sangui lecture given by Mr. Ji Lianhai from the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University.

    Interesting place. I loved the Marley area and the part about NWA, that was pretty cool. There were areas playing iconic scenes from past events on big screens which were great to watch. A lot of history in there. Just wish it was a tiny… bit bigger but overall it was good.

    Cirque du Soleil "OVO" was performing at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater. The venue is easy to find, plenty of parking close by ($30 in parking structure). 7,700 seats are in the Theater, yet it ldoes not feel too crowded. The show was an amazing demonstration of acrobatics!

    I have been to this theater before for a movie showing, this time it was for a live show. The theater is absolutely beautiful and completely restored to its original state. There is not bad seat, even in the balcony, you can see, hear and enjoy the show. If you are able to go, definitely recommend.
