Maybe I didn't spend enough time here, but I thought that this collection was inferior to both The Broad and MOCA. Also the famous lamp post installation outside better in pictures.

In a city with world class artists supported by world class private money, this physical plant is an embarrassment. Sort of like LAX. Either too many decision makers or not enough. Either way, it doesn’t work. And it’s so ugly it’s hard to ignore. Gave...More

Not too impressed, although my sister (who was with me) said that she has seen great exhibits in the past. Perhaps it was just the current exhibits. Nice facility. I thought $25 was a lot for entry given that the exhibits were so disappointing.

The museum has a huge collection of classic, abstract and contemporary art. The buildings are beautiful as well. The layout of the museum itself is gorgeous. My favourite part was the gallery they had with 3d images. That was a visual treat!

So many buildings and special collections to see. We try and visit each time we come to LA, and always see something different. And, amazingly, we always find parking right along the street within a block of the museum.

Well, when i visited the place a few months ago the gate person charged me $14. And if you are local with a valid identification you will get additional discount. Can't understand why some people paid $25.

Park along the street right infront of the lights. Take a picture and leave. Cars won't bother except for the Metro Bus.
