This is one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. I love getting lost in the gardens which is pretty easy to do. The Chinese gardens, added in 2012, have grown in beautifully. The new entrance which opened this year, (2015), is a lot more grand than before. The art and library collections are still pretty great, but for me, it's all about the gardens. The new restaurant, which just opened near the entrance, has a huge patio which is perfect for eating while taking in the view.
Great place to explore art, enjoy walking in their beautiful botanical gardens and enjoy the beautiful sceneries with family
Incredible artwork and the grounds are lovely! A must see!
Truly an amazing place for the family to spend a few hours. I didn't go to the museum or library, but walking the grounds in spectacular from the Desert Garden to Japanese Garden to Lily Pond, you won't be disappointed. Definitely bring good walking shoes and lots of snacks/water for the kids b/c the property is fairly large. Some of the signage isn't that great so be sure to get a map at the front desk.
I went on a free day wih my bf. The garden is beautiful and so is the art museums they have. My only trouble was when I went to the tea room/cafe the cashier wouldn't take any orders or act there was any customers. The prices were expeience already but someone bring that mean while you are trying to order fries just made me rly upset.
