Overview

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.

We visited this museum because it was a reference in the culture of Los Angeles. The entrance ticket is kind of pricey (almost $30 dollars), but I think in the end is worthy. There are many galleries, and they are very well organized, many recognizable...More

You might need to pace yourself here. There is a LOT to see! Some absolutely amazing art here. there are wonderful temporary exhibits and stunning permanent collections. Bonus: right next to the tar pits, which are also very cool!

I've been all over the globe, I love art, I make art. LACMA is a relatively underrated museum. I especially like their Native American collection, but the African collection is great too. And they have free Jazz on Fridays sometimes. Admission for LA residents Tuesdays...More

Worth a chunk of anyone's time to admire the treasures. And even if you're just riding by on a tour bus there's that wonderful piece of artwork made from street lights down the years. Feast your eyes for free.

Nice place to take a break from shopping and sightseeing. Quiet and chill. The museum security takes their jobs real serious. Not very friendly. You touch it... They will come. Other than that... Great place to get your culture on and take IG photos
