Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)
Since its inception in 1965, LACMA has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography and represents Los Angeles' uniquely diverse population. Today, the museum features particularly strong collections of Asian, Latin American, European, and American art, as well as a new contemporary museum on its campus, BCAM. With this expanded space for contemporary art, innovative collaborations with artists, and an ongoing transformation project, LACMA is creating a truly modern lens through which to view its rich encyclopedic collection more than 100,000 works strong. With this much to explore, they encourage you to spend an entire day with them, 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. The second Tuesday of every month has free admission.
LACMA is fantastic! I've always been a huge fan of this museum, which is the home of the world's largest encyclopaedic collection of art (this means they have more of every type of major work than any other!). LACMA offers great learning opportunities for families, social opportunities for people of all ages, FREE Friday night jazz concerts, special movie screenings, an excellent restaurant and more, all in a beautiful setting (which is currently undergoing a major transformation). This is a highly underrated gem that is not to be missed!
I believe every life should have room for a museum visit. Our time on earth seems so fleeting. During quiet moments, I wonder how I have already managed to use up four of my finite decades that I get to spend on this planet. The museum shows the works of people who used up all their decades. Some of them were happy to see their time finished so they could make room for the next generation. Some were irritated to be dead. Either way, I hope they felt something, and they got to express it and hang it in a museum.
I like the collection of art they have and it is cheap to visit, great value. A GREAT TIME TO VISIT IS DURING THE WEEK BECAUSE THERE IS LESS TRAFIC. You could also sit and have caffe and lunch in their yard
I do like the place of the seenary ancient building other interesting atractive events, and other archaeology senario of the city.
Also other activities such as entertainments, public utilitites and so on!!!!
The permanent exabitions are great. There is something for everyone: contemporary art, furniture, Renaissance, Japanese art, etc. This museum always has wonderful temporary exhibitions too. Such as Ansel Adams, Van Gogh, and King Tut.
