The art on view at the LACMA spans cultures, countries, artistic styles and generations. With modern as well as traditional masterpieces of photography, painting, sculpture and textiles, this museum has it all. It provides the perfect introduction to art for the little ones. Being family focused, the museum tries to keep kids entertained and active by including them in important artistic discussions. For instance, the Andeli Family Sunday Tours are designed to be interactive. These tours are given in English and Spanish and encourage families to look, listen and share their ideas with one another. Before entering, kids can even pick up an Art Tote. These helpful companions contain objects for kids to handle and fun educational activities. The building's modern architecture design is a site to see in itself, and the entrances Urban Lights collection is a photo-op hotspot. LACMA is a forward-thinking art museum that sees its visiting children as future artists.

World-class museumFlag review
This amazing museum spans three city blocks, so it would be easy to spend an entire day admiring the 150,000-plus art collection housed in six mega buildings. Most galleries are included in the price of general admission but special exhibits require a separate ticket. We get there in the morning and work our way through the buildings, stopping for lunch at noon. There are several good onsite restaurants. Art extends beyond museum walls. There’s an outdoor sculpture garden, reflecting pool and Urban Light, a collection of 202 vintage streetlamps lined up in rows. Concerts and classes for kids, teens and adults make LACMA a very family-friendly venue.
Tips for Families
For a clear view of the Hollywood sign, step onto the observation deck of the Broad Contemporary Art Museum’s third floor. In the same building, ride the huge elevator the size of two or three rooms.
