  • The museum consists of four separate buildings and each has its own type of art on display from pottery sculpture and painted articles. It was well worth a visit although not free to visit.  more »

  • Very disappointed in this place. I am an art enthusiast and frequently attend museums and this one was less than satisfying. The art was wonderful...that is the 50% I did actually get to see...I understand exhibits must be closed for installations but to close SO many at once during peak hours of the day is ridiculous. In addition there were no postings that these installations would be closed (of course) when we bought our tickets and the cashier did not mention it either. We would have went anyways but the most annoying part of all was walking the entire place and having to figure out for ourselves once we got to each one that they were closed. We spent a lot of our time turning around and getting lost because of the closed exhibits that we hardly got to enjoy the ones we did actually get to see. If we would’ve known we wouldn’t have wasted anytime trying to get to the closed ones. I am a tourist so this might have been a vary rare chance to appreciate your exhibits and it was ruined. Very sad.
  • Honestly.... just so so? I guess I was expecting more? More art... more exhibits. In fairness to the Museum & S review.... several things were closed the day I visited. So I don't think I got the full effect
  • I had an awesome time at LACMA. This is a great date spot to spend an hour or plan your whole day around. Lots of interesting pieces and of course the famous street lamps exhibit which you can actually get to from outside without buying a museum ticket. The tar pits are directly connected and is another great (and free) date spot. Street parking can be tricky but there is a garage for $$.
  • Good way to spend few hours or entire day with my family. The museum offers various exhibitions that appeal to vide range of visitors. Plenty of space for kids to run and play. Some food and coffee options. I liked the Coffee&Milk, they have really nice espresso.
