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.

Nice museum w/ nice and eclectic permanent collections but dont go for the soccer exhibit. Its small and in the opinion of 3 fans, of poor quality. For a World Cup year, they could have done much much better. That exhibit drew us there but luckily the rest was worth seeing

The LACMA is a very well-maintained and large museum.

The exhibits are great, and there are also a variety of special visiting artists/exhibitions.

You can either park at the LACMA or find street parking, which in my opinion isn't that difficult.

Students (with a student ID) get a discount, and the yearly membership is a great deal.

Where does one begin to describe one of the more captivating museums of the world in Los Angeles?

It's a nice place to visit for any reason when one is pensive and needs an uplifted spirit.

Serene, feels isolated, lovely – even though busy busy Rt. 1 is right below and there were hordes of shrieking school kids when I was there. This reconstructed Roman villa is a model of grace and beauty, a true oasis.

An exhibit on Byzantine life was GREAT. How often do you get insight into how people lived 2000 years ago?

I’m only sorry it took me so many years to finally visit.

I really like the gallery with ancient Chinese paintings. Another gallery with Japanese exhibitions is also good. They also have Latin American exhibitions, etc.
