This is a great museum, but it was Noah's Ark that anchored our visit. It was a great experience for our 4y/old. There was also the summer concert series going on and that was a nice addition. This museum is absolutely worth an afternoon for locals and Los Angeles visitors alike.

We did not have time to visit all the Cultural Center, but certainly the Noah's Ark exhibit is simply excellent. Creatively interactive. Friendly staff. Lots of activities for children to do. It would appear that there is much more to see on another visit. The buildings are impressive and we have a great lunch at the deli. We went early... More

Always busy but the ARK is so amazing its worth it. They usually have a really great temporary exhibit also, we have loved everything we have seen here. Free day gets really busy so its worth it to go another day and pay for your visit.

Great place to take little ones 1-10. There are lots of hands-on activities and nice atmosphere of sharing with other families.

Went on a mid-day to a very uncrowded, free parking, easy to access Jewish cultural center/museum, with a short term baseball exhibit. Lots of great Jewish history and exhibits as well, plus a really well done children's interactive play area (Noah's Ark). Well worth spending several hours here - just down the street from Getty Center.

For my teenage, who loves baseball, this was a fun exhibit, presented in an entertaining, engaging way which wove history in seamlessly.

We attended the baseball exhibit and I would strongly recommend it. The orange crate replica artwork was particularly interesting. The only problem is small signage which was difficult to read.
