    LACMA is vast, so I shall home in on the newest part, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum. Architecturally, the building is a stunner. I entered at the top using the exterior escalator. There’s engrossing multimedia art and a truly intricate kinetic piece with miniature autos and HO gauge trains / street cars. If contemporary art is not your thing, you might enjoy the view from the IMMENSE glass elevator. Not to miss the upper floors of thew Art of the Americas building. I especially liked the Mexican section.

    LACMA, you’re definitely not lacking when it comes to the arts.I’ve been to LACMA before, but I haven’t been since Levitated Mass, the large rock from a local quarry, was put on permanent exhibit here. Saturday was a good a time as any to check Levitated Mass out and have a look at the other exhibits on display.Levitated Mass was, IMHO, underwhelming. I thought it would be bigger! (that’s what she said) Visitors have fun posing as if they are lifting the rock, of which I was no exception. It’s located towards the rear of the premises. Not quite my cup of tea, but definitely worth having a glimpse.My favorite exhibits would have to be the Asian & Middle Eastern Art. Being a fan of “Ancient Aliens” on H2, I was delighted to see the same reliefs of the Annunaki, the gods of the ancient Sumerians, on exhibit.The Sumerians were the most ancient known civilization, with the belief that the Annunaki created humans from clay. They also believed that the god Enlil, wanted to wipe out humans off the earth with a great flood, but the god Enqi, wanting to save humans, warned the Sumerian King, Ziusudra, to build a “craft” for he and his family, along with seed from all living things, to survive the upcoming flood. The same mythology is present in the Hebrew bible, with the Sumerian myths predating them.The Asian art sculptures were a sight to behold, with their intricacy and craftmanship that have remained to this day.-…The Greco/Roman & European art were fascinating to look at, as well. Highlights for me were works by Monet and, while not a huge fan, seeing Picasso’s on display.Of course, you can’t go to LACMA w/o taking pics with the lampposts in the front.Parking is in private lots and metro stops are within the area. When I went, several food trucks were parked across Wilshire for anyone looking for some chow.I highly recommend paying a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Spend a day, viewing incredible works of art and taking memorable pictures with your loved ones and friends. A must in SoCal!

    No doubt this place has free admission, but this doesn’t mean that the guards over there feel to be so proud and rude. I don’t know why they are so rude! They must change their behavior if they want to attract more and more people to this museum! I felt very good inside and this place has some great arts through out the world, but the guard experience made my day a bad one!

    Getty Center might the prettier museum for visit. But this museum has the most selection and much easier to get too. This museum has so many thing to see it take you a good half day or more too just look around. I am very impressive with their Japanese art selection, so many artwork and collection. This museum well worth the admission it ask, even better it offer free in certain holiday which is sponsor by Target. Parking isn’t free but street parking meter is a lower rate in this area. Unfortunate the area is kinda ghetto feeling, there’s not much to see in walking distance. Only the inside of the museum cost admission, their two most well-known attraction. Rock and the street lights is free to go by and you can take some aresome picture with it !
