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.
like: driving up and down the street looking for the place.
dislike: lack of exhibits and quality. a special, allegedly incredibly wonderful, very old carpet exhibit turned out to be 2, yes, just 2 carpets. art deco exhibit: 8 items, which included a couple of wall paper samples. the egyptian exhibit was truly pitiful. i saw better stuff in a junk drawer in cairo, egypt. the junk drawer stuff was sold to "antika" collectors with absolutely no idea of what they were looking at or for. 1/3 of the museum was closed for "refurbishment". The only exhibit in abundance: unbelievably awful "modern" art. the only thing that made the stuff art is that someone had the smart idea to label each piece as art. save yourself and your money, go to a real museum.
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 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 Loved all the art it was quite interesting to see all the beutiful art and see all the cool disigns. I would love to go back and see more maybe you will have different art in there when i visit again.
Likes - Nice architecture of buildings within which exhibits and art work are housed.
Dislikes - What a huge disappointment. I at least expected to see works from some of the American greats in the American Art exhibit, such as include Ansel Adams and Charles M. Russell. Instead, my group and I viewed modern art exhibits to include amateur-looking portraits of obscure or unnamed people and hideous sculpture. One 'painting' looked like barn siding. The Japanese exhibit was mediocre at best, with nothing particularly noteworthy. Don't waste your time and money at LACMA. Instead, visit the La Brea tar pits next door, the Peterson Auto Museum a few blocks away, and either of the Getty Art Museums.

This museum, founded in 1924, is certainly one of Southern California's forgotten gems. The collection here contains a wealth of
Middle Eastern artifacts, some of which are more than 2,000 years old. Collected by explorer Antonio F. Futterer during ...
