Unlike the previous comparison exhibit we saw elsewhere, these artists were communicating with each other and working contemporaneously. Interesting. Also enjoyed the Japanese pavilion with...More

I didn't expect much compared to the Getty. And in fact, LACMA is a step down but not a big step down. I can't cite specific artist names, but there were a lot of stop-and-study paintings, even for myself who is more into music than...More

Yes. Get in the ticket line.
I do not want to visit inside the museum but I want to enjoy the sights on the grounds and its surrounding. Will I need to buy a ticket then?

hey all! I tried to make reservations online but the listed time given is only 11am. Can I reserve my tickets online at that time and still go in the evening instead?

I agree that LACMA is very strict. I have called to inquire about cancellations and they helped me switch me tickets. Best of luck.
