Owner description: Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes over 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art. Among the museum's strengths are its holdings of Asian art, Latin American art, ranging from pre-Columbian masterpieces to works by leading modern and contemporary artists; and Islamic art, of which LACMA hosts one of the most significant collections in the world. A museum of international stature as well as a vital part of Southern California, LACMA shares its vast collections through exhibitions, public programs, and research facilities that attract over a million visitors annually, in addition to serving millions through digital initiatives, such as online collections, scholarly catalogues, and interactive engagement online. Situated in Hancock Park on over 20 acres in the heart of Los Angeles, LACMA is located between the ocean and downtown. With this much to explore, we encourage you to spend an entire day with us, delving deep into the work of your favorite artists, taking a free tour, catching a film or concert, or just letting your curiosity lead the way.

It's crazy to know that there are so many beautiful places to go in Los Angeles; LACMA would be one of them. I got introduced to this place by my friend who was actually traveling to visit. We took pictures in the light post. If you ever need a place to go or a place to take pictures, this is the spot!

well with hopes high we attended the museum and paid full price admission! i do not reccomend this to anyone. we were informed that the museum was closing soon as in sometime in the next year or so to tear it down and rebuild a new and improved building. nice except half the exhibits are already closed and the ones that are there if they have moving parts well dont expect them to move if its a week day.....oh you pay the full admission but no one there to flip the switch to turn things on.......needless to say the day was well half a day and we will not be back.....a shame because we used to really enjoy the place......and just fyi if you buy a drink in the cafe the iced tea costs more than the soda???? why???? nothing made any sense but i do understand why they sell alcohol.......

You can't say you've been to LA if you haven't visited LACMA. The museum is absolutely gorgeous, so much variety, the buildings, stairs, gift shops, etc. are all really cool. A couple of things I was bummed about when I visited last week was that there were many rooms in transition so I wasn't able to view certain things, and that I had visited 2 other museums earlier in the day so by the time I got to LACMA I was worn out. I recommend doing ONLY LACMA in a day so you can really take your time and enjoy everything. A ton of photo opportunities! Loved it!

I spent about 3 hours here on a Thursday morning and really enjoyed myself. I liked seeing one exhibit in one building and then relaxing a bit before heading to the next exhibit. My only disappoint was that I didn't check what was open in advance. A lot of the galleries were half-closed at the time due to setting up new exhibits...

The trick is getting a shot without anyone in it! This looks beautiful at night and is a fun jaunt from the museums!
