They always have some pretty unique exhibits you don't have to be Jewish to appreciate and enjoy. Their Noah's Ark exhibit for kids is wonderful, but you need advance reservations for that on weekends, especially.
Skirball Cultural Center
Who's Gonna Love Me Now?
- General Info:
- This museum and cultural center holds the world's fifth-largest collection of artifacts concerning Judaism and American life. Noah's Ark is an interactive playspace for families, with a separate timed admission ticket.
A great space and we really enjoyed the exhibitions. The permanent collection of Jewish history and artifacts was definitely educational. And we spent hours enjoying the Bill Graham exhibit. Skirball will definitely be on my short list for a repeat visit the next time I'm in LA.

This review is on the Noah's Ark @ the Skirball.
It is FREE every Thursday, but you have to get reservations online. They usually distribute fast. Always look on the first day of the month for 2 months later. Parking is FREE.
I loved it and so did my 2 year old. It wasn't crowded at all cause you have time limits as to when you can go in and when you have to leave by (2 hours)
The introduction was great and really gets you into the scene and viewing (all of the animals are made out recycled items).
Everything the children can touch. My son loved the zebras, making rain and lightning, putting the animals on the tram and watching them go up into the boat, playing in the net (if under 4 you have to go in with them), and the rainbow mist outside.
They have a craft table for older kids.
Definitely recommend this place for anytime.
