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.

LACMA is a great museum with extensive art collections. However, I enjoyed the Urban Lights and the sculpture garden the most. It is located in the central LA and traffic and parking are always difficult. The best parking is the museum underground parking. If you...More

I went here specifically for the lights only. It was very busy with lots of people taking pictures. I went at night time. I walked here from somewhere else, and the neighborhood was a bit sketchy.

The variety of art you will find makes a visit well-worth your effort. Each time we've come, we've seen new pieces and had a completely unique experience. The effect of LACMA's multiple buildings is that viewers have less museum fatigue. The family art room is...More

If you like 20th century modern art you will enjoy LACMA. The museum itself was a bit smaller than expected. It was $54 for 2 tickets and $16 for parking. A bit pricier than other museums we visited (in large cities).

Really nice crowded tourist spot. Great for photos. Would recommend coming in the evening time or whenever its getting dark so you can see the real beauty of the lights. Recommend visiting.

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

We’ve been to LACMA twice and only just found out about the NexGen program (after we paid—oh well, it’s for a good cause). LACMA wants to encourage children to visit the museum frequently so they have a program in place that entitles each child under...More
