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.

I was very disappointed in LACMA, as it was one of the main attractions for my visit to Los Angeles. I'm much more interested in pre-20th century art, so I'm not going to rave about the Rothko's, etc. Much of the exhibit space is closed...More

Although I am non-plussed by most of the LACMA architecture, the actual art collection is superlative. I was amazed by the modernist european holdings in expression and related movements. Some nice Rothko and Jackson Pollock. Very good Picasso's, and many other modern masters. I also...More

Excellent exhibits but not much for kids. We’d leave them at home next time. Parking was kind of tricky too. Great food all around which we enjoyed.
