Super cool exhibit showing the dynamic and vibrant work of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein! Inspired by comic book art, with bright flashes of colors! Lots of bold lines and dots, and although so simple, has subliminal messages and double meanings which are very thought provoking! The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles itself is a small and quaint like museum,... More

Drive up to the Skirball if you're in L.A., particularly if you're Jewish. There are always fascinating exhibits going on, fun activities for children, and there's a fine cafeteria/dining hall as well.

It was a well-done review of Jewish history with a series of rooms of memorabilia as well as stories of Jews through-out history. Also great for kids is the Noah's Ark. All the characters are made from recycled items. And there are places for children to climb and crawl. Our family enjoyed it immensely.

Amazing history and beautiful location. They often have special exhibits in place and on Thursdays it's free admission.

Whether it be for religious reasons or festive parties, this museum is wonderful. Their distinct showings and displays are always different. Interesting and fascinating information about Jewish culture and history. Should you want a lavish dinner or calming luncheon, the ballroom area is lovely. Nestled in the hills of Bel Aire, the location is beautiful.

I spent a few hours walking around Skirball Cultural Center and it was very informative as well as learning history. I watched a documentary entitled "The Queen Has No Crown" and having a snack off the cart in the lobby.

This was quite a bit out of our way but we really wanted to see the Lichtenstein exhibit. The entrance fee was reasonable but the exhibit was actually quite small and disappointing. I was also a bit disappointed in the cafe as there is nothing else in the neighbourhood it would have been nice to enjoy a more robust cafe... More

I have driven past the Skirball for years. The current exhibit of the Roy Lichtenstein collection drew me in for my first visit. I also wanted to see the much talked about Noah's Ark. Purchased tickets online, along with selecting a time frame to visit the Arc. The RL exhibit was fun, lots of different peices along with an interactive... More

I have never been disappointed to see everything at the Skirball. I visited recently, with my 4 year old Grandniece, and my 6 year old Grandnephew, and I discovered Noah's Ark. Noah's Ark is so informative for children, and the experience for them is awesome. In addition, there is a collection of artwork from Roy Lichtenstein, which will be there... More
