Los Angeles County Museum of Art - LACMA, Los Angeles: 30 reviews and 74 photos
LACMA is currently undergoing renovations so a lot of what I wanted to see was closed. Check their website first to find out if what you want to see is open. What I did see wasn't really on par with New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Art Institute in Chicago but it's hard to make a judgment on an incomplete collection.
There's a special exhibit running through January 7, 2007 called Breaking the Mode with pieces of contemporary fashion displayed next to classic fashion, without exception I preferred the classic fashions and found most of the contemporary fashion hideous.
They have a nice program now where admission after 5 pm is free and they are open until 8 pm every evening except Wednesday when they are closed and Friday when they are open until 9 pm. Also on Friday nights, April-December, at 5:30 pm they have free Friday Night Jazz concerts outside on their patio and on Sunday free Live Chamber Music at 6 pm in the Leo Bing Theater.
For dining, the Plaza Cafe looked like it might have some interesting food but I headed to the Farmer's Market instead. I thought it might be close enough to walk but it wasn't. Be sure to at least stop by and see the main pit of the La Brea tar pits should you visit LACMA, you can also combine with a visit to the Petersen Automotive Museum.
