This was quite a bit out of our way but we really wanted to see the Lichtenstein exhibit. The entrance fee was reasonable but the exhibit was actually quite small and disappointing. I was also a bit disappointed in the cafe as there is nothing else in the neighbourhood it would have been nice to enjoy a more robust cafe... More

Purchased tickets online, along with selecting a time frame to visit the Arc. The RL exhibit was fun, lots of different peices along with an interactive... More

I have never been disappointed to see everything at the Skirball. I visited recently, with my 4 year old Grandniece, and my 6 year old Grandnephew, and I discovered Noah's Ark. Noah's Ark is so informative for children, and the experience for them is awesome. In addition, there is a collection of artwork from Roy Lichtenstein, which will be there... More

This lovely attraction is one of the best in the Los Angeles area. It covers Jewish culture and history in a magnificent setting. Current exhibit is a Lichtenstein retrospective. There is also a hands on Noah's Ark exhibit and a large exhibit on 4500 years of Jewish history. It is closed on Mondays and is free on Thursday. Admission is... More

There is more to the Skirball Cultural Center than just a museum. There are two permanent exhibits, one on Jewish culture and the other on Noah's Ark. The Noah's Ark is very popular. Most of the animals sculptures are made partly of objects such as fly swatters, shoes and purses, mixing whips, and car parts. It is very much for... More

This is a great museum, but it was Noah's Ark that anchored our visit. It was a great experience for our 4y/old. There was also the summer concert series going on and that was a nice addition. This museum is absolutely worth an afternoon for locals and Los Angeles visitors alike.

We did not have time to visit all the Cultural Center, but certainly the Noah's Ark exhibit is simply excellent. Creatively interactive. Friendly staff. Lots of activities for children to do. It would appear that there is much more to see on another visit. The buildings are impressive and we have a great lunch at the deli. We went early... More
