    The Islamic art is located on the 4th floor of Ahmanson building.Unfortunately,its so limited.Since jan'15,they featured contemporary Islamic art&removed the ancient art&will switch back again in '18!

    At the LACMA Café, I absent-mindedly rearranged the ingredients of my fruit salad into a smiling face. I returned from the restroom to discover my creation had been awarded Best in Show.

    If you're an LA local, or on a budget, look up free museum days & free museum hours! Wonderful staff, and a wide variety of art to please a wide variety of tastes in art. Next to a beautiful park.

    Great area. Has the iconic lamps that everyone goes to for the 'gram! Upstairs is a cute cafe called C+M and there's wifi so you're able to work on their patio outside and soak up the sun.

    LACMA is one of the best modern art museums in the country. Come here to see the famous light post installation, Urban Light, check out some Rivera & Matisse, and definitely don’t miss Metropolis II.

    I Love how on certain occasions a special event is featured. Last time I went I got to see the special exhibit featuring DVF dresses. Beautiful, and definitely a great place for artsy people.

    Great museum, a little bit expensive but worth it. Plenty of options for lunch and early dinner. Also a bar where you can enjoy a drink. Better yet, picnic at La Brea Pits.

    The boutique at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is most notable for its selection of exclusive, limited-edition prints, like local legend Catherine Opie’s eerie photo of the Crenshaw High School.

    Love that there are so many outdoor public spaces in between buildings. Also the Japanese Art building has an architecture worth checking out.

    Great place to bring tourists and LA newbies. Most will recognize this art work in a movie or two. Beautiful place day or night.

    LACMA is a great place to visit. It has several floors of art. The European section was fantastic. If you are into art and even if you are not, you should visit this place.

    stellar outdoor installations are open to the public, while thoughtful exhibitions in the Resnick and other buildings keep things fresh. Must visit website for upcoming rotations.

    The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the largest art museum in LA. It's right next to the La Brea Tar Pits as well as a handful of other museums and galleries.

    Most of the lower level entry areas were very well displayed. The buildings construction and the way the Art was arranged was easy one the eyes and feet. I definitely recommend repeated attendance.

    Great spot for a first date. Meet under LACMA's Urban Lights display on Wilshire Boulevard and head inside to check out the art see a film or play, or listen to free concerts on Sundays Live events.

    The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest art museum in the western US, or so they say. What they don't tell you is that you can follow Justin Timberlake around when you tire of old statues.

    The current special exhibit on Frank Gehry models and the crowd-pleasing Metropolis II are not to be missed. The quiet, spacious layout of the Japanese gallery is always a delight.

    This museum's donors are perhaps narcissists...they want their own wing but clearly there is little funding for conservation, display and maintenance. Amazing collection, but sadly uncared for.

    You can actually skip the long line for tickets at the front if you walk up the stairs and go towards the middle of the area with the hanging strings from the ceiling.

    Food is amazing. Service, not so much. But, between the music and the food...you'll have a wonderful night. Have a Paloma...it's delicious!

    Use your phone as a free guide. Open the LACMA mobile site and enter the number next to the piece. Not all artworks are available, and some have audio.
