I absolutely adore LACMA!!!! There are a ton of different exhibits, and while you can always count on some exhibits remaining the same, the museum seems to be ever-changing. I love how everything is laid out and it's close proximity to the La Brea Tar Pits and plenty of food options. Food trucks line the street frequently, so you can eat something different every time you come.
My favorite part though is the NexGen program, which allows children up to age 17 to enjoy the museum for free and bring one adult guest for free with their entry.
I love LACMA! This museum is constantly changing their exhibitions and has a huge collection of ancient and historical art and artifacts. I really enjoyed the ancient Buddhist and Hindu collections. The museum is very large and each building has multiple floors so it's easy to spend an entire day here. During the week, LA county residents are free after 3pm. Also, there is ample free street parking if you go at a less busy time during the week.
A great place to spend a day exploring the exhibitions. Not every exhibit is going to be a standout but you've got to appreciate everyone's perspective. The cafe and outdoor seating were a great place to refuel for more exploring.
It has been a couple of years since someone came along to write some lines about you here. You have changed recently and maybe because of this people don't really know what to say. But I know: Thank you for the BCAM, thanks for the Resnick pavillion! Thanks for turning this place into a location where I want to hang out, enjoy art, friends & food. Thanks LACMA!

I can't remember the last time I paid more than $8 for a museum--and this was the LACMA student price. I went to see King Tut with 10 other friends. The exhibit was built upfirst, some general Egyptian history, then the life of the pharaohs, then King Tut, some Tut artifacts, a video speculating his death, then...the gift shop? I walked in and out 5 times and had to ask the guard--where is King Tut?! He said I was the 100th person to ask that; Tut was in Egypt.
What a tease--not one mummy. I wouldn't have minded so much except that's what we were expecting.

I went here on the 2nd tuesday of the month. (Every 2nd tuesday it is supposedly free)It was a pain to get in! The museum staff said we needed tickets! You didnt need one if u came at 7:30. But that was only 10 minutes away! So we had to walk a whole football field distance to get tickets! But when we finally did get in. The art was very beautiful. However some of the paintings looked like they were painted by my 5 yr. old brother! They had some cool looking stained glass paintings that impressed me. Among other things.. The museum has many floors. But the employees like I said are mean! When its time to leave they make you feel oh so unwanted! Almost as if they got a gun to your head to get out!

I've finally found a nice place for lunch since our office moved from Pasadena. My daughter brought me here a few weeks ago and we had plenty of time to eat our lunch on the grass and then went in to see one of the exhibits.
Of course this is only reasonable if you have a membership and don't have to pay. But the membership is reasonable and you can bring a guest for free.
