  • Nice motive for photos. And super is, that the lanterns outside the Museum are (had too little time for the museum itself). CA 1 km is a farmers market, can you to stroll well, beautifully decorated in the winter.

  • This is only for the Friday jazz concerts. I have not actually been inside the museum but have gone several times for the free jazz concert. It is a great place to bring a blanket and picnic. The seating fills up fast, but there is usually some space you can find on the grass to the sides. We go not because we listed to the quality of the music. It is more a great place to have some pleasant music in the background while chatting with friends. Parking can be tough if you get there late.
  • One of my favorite museum spaces in LA. Their collection is expensive! There is something for all tastes from ancient Egypt to Japanese and Contemporary art. Their permanent collection is rotating, so you will always find something new. They have a great family space and programs that engage kids in looking at and making art. Free guided tours are offered on weekends. Warning: the museum is undergoing a massive building project over the next 3 years. Many of the buildings will be closed and off limits until construction is done. It may not be worth the ticket price until they reopen.
