I'll been be to so many museums in Los Angeles, I rank this the highest for Art museum, however I have not been to Getty Center yet, but with so many art collection to see, some are going to wow you like the modern art, i surprise they also got good amount of Aztec and Qin Dynasty artwork collection, which is rare to see from a U.S. museum, those mini figure in the Japan Artwork is so impressive. You can easily spend over 2 to 4 hours here. The thing I do not like is the museum is separate is couple building, so each time you enter, need to show the ticket again. Parking is a bit asking $15. Street parking is meter and is only up to 2 hours. The location is not great, heavy traffic and is a bit smelly.Recommended for:

This is the kind of museum you can get blissfully lost in for hours. Even when I lived in LA, I never got tired of wandering through the exhibition halls, which are even bigger and better than before now after recent multimillion-dollar renovations. Personally, my fave is the low-lit Japanese art gallery, where you walk around a circular spiral stairway to view gorgeous multi-panel painted screens. The new Disney-sponsored (!) Mexican art gallery is another feast for the eyes, with its funky, colorful curtains and gigantic archaeological artifacts. So many special events going on here, it's worth checking the website before your visit.Recommended for:

Chris Urban's iconic entrance to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art has become such an icon in its own right, that attendance to just the 202 lamppost installation far supersedes that of the museum itself. You'll recognize these white towering posts from, ohhhhh, music videos, movies, commercials, television shows, and the Instagram feeds of every single one of your pals who have visited LA.Recommended for:

Great date place, or just a good touristy spot to check out!
I brought my parents here to have a nice family outing and its amazing living in LA we can pass on, on so many amazing FREE events!
Recently my guy and I came here to kill some time, we got to LACMA at 7pm, so right across the street you can get free parking (after 7) make sense because LACMA closes at 8pm.
We went on Jazz and Wine night so there were amazing music playing with dozens of people set up tiny picnics at every crevice of the main area of LACMA! It was just such so fun to see people dancing and just enjoying themselves!
Lacma is so big, there are certain part of the museum where you will have to pay. Honestly i never pay for any of those i just continue walking around and its big enough to keep yourself entertained!Recommended for:

LACMA, you're definitely not lacking when it comes to the arts.
I've been to LACMA before, but I haven't been since Levitated Mass, the large rock from a local quarry, was put on permanent exhibit here. Saturday was a good a time as any to check Levitated Mass out and have a look at the other exhibits on display.
Levitated Mass was, IMHO, underwhelming. I thought it would be bigger! (that's what she said) Visitors have fun posing as if they are lifting the rock, of which I was no exception. It's located towards the rear of the premises. Not quite my cup of tea, but definitely worth having a glimpse.
My favorite exhibits would have to be the Asian & Middle Eastern Art. Being a fan of "Ancient Aliens" on H2, I was delighted to see the same reliefs of the Annunaki, the gods of the ancient Sumerians, on exhibit. The Sumerians were the most ancient known civilization, with the belief that the Annunaki created humans from clay. They also believed that the god Enlil, wanted to wipe out humans off the earth with a great flood, but the god Enqi, wanting to save humans, warned the Sumerian King, Ziusudra, to build a "craft" for he and his family, along with seed from all living things, to survive the upcoming floood. The same mythology is present in the Hebrew bible, with the Sumerian myths predating them.
The Asian art sculptures were a sight to behold, with their intricacy and craftmanship that have remained to this day.
The Greco/Roman & European art were fascinating to look at, as well. Highlights for me were works by Monet and, while not a huge fan, seeing Picasso's on display.
Of course, you can't go to LACMA w/o taking pics with the lampposts in the front.
Parking is in private lots and metro stops are within the area. When I went, several food trucks were parked across Wilshire for anyone looking for some chow.
I highly recommend paying a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Spend a day, viewing incredible works of art and taking memorable pictures with your loved ones and friends. A must in SoCal!Recommended for:

LACMA is comprised of a series of large, expansive buildings and the art is spread out throughout. The museum is large but sometimes it feels like there's not enough art to take up all the space. On this visit I particularly enjoyed Metropolis II and think it's every little boy's dream come true. Levitated Mass is cool to see as well.Recommended for:

My favorite painting in the world (Treachery of Images, Rene Magritte) is at LACMA, so of course, the museum was tops on my list of things I had to see in LA. The museum itself is incredible - the architecture, layout, and overall design of the exhibits - just awesome. I loved it. The collection is outstanding, and the temporary exhibits were fascinating. I highly recommend making this museum a priority!Recommended for:
