One of, if not the, best museums I've been to. The experience is amazing, unique and thought-provoking. The atmosphere is truly something magical. The less you know the better, go and experience it for yourself. Entry is cheap and 100% worth it. I spent a few hours in there.

My daughter, who lives in Culver City, showed me this amusing, intelligent, toungue-in-cheek museum. I looked around at some of the visitors and could see that they didn't get it! I've never seen a museum like this. If you have a random sense of humor, don't miss it!

A must visit for museum lovers! Charming Russian tea room on the top floor. Fascinating exhibits and collections. Interesting film for viewing. Some exhibits out of order.

I LOVE this place and can't praise it enough. It's probably the weirdest place I've ever been. It's sitting on Venice blvd and by the front door, you'd never know what's inside. It's fun to walk around for a couple hours and have tea upstairs. It's sooooo interesting and will keep you captivated for a long time. TIP: Don't look... More

I get it - this museum is some kind of parody. But a lot of its content is so obscure and bizarre that you are left scratching your head wondering where the joke is. Some parts of the museum are genuinely funny, but generally in a very subtle and somehow unsatisfying way. That said, I still enjoyed the visit on... More

Truth or fiction, reality or myth? You decide.The world divides into two groups: the many wonderful people who visit this museum and are totally baffled and turned off by its blurred line between confabulation and reality, or the devoted fans who are totally charmed by its brilliant obfuscation, challenging originality, and dry humor. Get in the mood by watching the... More

This is a dimly lighted, maze-like collection of strange things. There is an eerie 3-D movie, microscopic mosaics made from butterfly wings and our ( me and my 5 yr old) favorite exhibit, a collection of miniature staircases. $8 for adults, kids under 14 free, tea and cookies on the rooftop terrace included. No photos allowed. Staff very friendly.

A hidden gem on the west side of LA, this is a must-see for any artist, writer, or scientist visiting LA. The artists who fabricated the MJT have taken one idea to the nth degree. That idea is "A museum composed of fake exhibits." Each area of the MJT presents a weirdo exhibit you might imagine would be in a... More

This is a great spot to go to as long as you go in without any expectations of having a traditional museum experience. In fact I would argue that the goal of this museum is to question what museums actually are, and it does it with some wonderful, heartfelt exhibitions....

I must see when you're in LA! It is a very weird place all together when you enter that looks like it emerges from another time in the past. The exhibitions are completely unrelated, but unique and set impulses for thoughts that one normally does not think about. I am definitely going back to visit a second time as 3h... More
