I'm always looking for a neat spot for the kid and we definitely found one today with the Noah's Ark Exhibit. Jackpot!  Kids are allowed to touch everything. In fact, they are ENCOURAGED to do it. Do you know how nice it ...

When I first moved to LA a few years ago, I was mostly already acquainted with the area. There was one, however, question which burned my brain. What is the Skirball? Is it a place? An object? An alien under governmental observance? A recreational center (this is what I first thought). Obviously, I figured it out rather quickly but I didn't actually get to experience the Skirball until now. Considered a Jewish Cultural Center but also a museum of sorts, the Skirball is sort of like the Getty on a much (much, much, much) more scaled down version. It features exhibits, gifts shops, free concerts, a venue for weddings, etc. Don't expect the same architectural wonders and gardens of the Getty, however. The Skirb...

My family went to the concert last night and it became a nightclub! Everyone danced, had a great time, and did not sit down at all! One of the best concerts I have been to...

I came here on a Thursday because that's when it's free. This is a Jewish history museum. With that said, it's very informative about the various places Jewish people live, the different types of Jewish people, how they eat, dress, pray and live. No photography indoors so forget any attempts to snap a pic of anything interesting. This place was crawling with docents. The Houdini exhibit was the best. Portions of the Skirball felt very unsettling for me, mainly because it felt more like a pity party for the Jews instead of a rallying cry for reunification and survival. But whatever. The Houdini exhibit has actual footage of Houdini conducting various magic tricks, along with replicas of what he used. There ar...

I've going up and down the 405 for who knows how long YET I haven't been here till recently?  What's up with that? Anyways, I'm glad I can cross this place off my bucket list of things to see in LA because I definitely enjoyed my time here.   I didn't spend too much time in the main exhibits (Houdini) but rather the Noah's ark exhibit and the art studio.  I should probably mention I was here with a kid's camp so that might explain why. Although the noah's ark exhibit was generally geared toward children, I couldn't help but get in touch with my own childhood.  I have to first state this though... I'm a big fan aka nerd about design so my eyes were immediately drawn to the sustainable and interesting concepts...

The last few times I've taken by daughter here the tickets to the fantastic Noah's Ark have been sold out. Note: I typically go on Thursdays which is their free (and busiest) day of the week, and right now in late June with school out the...

Holy cow!  We were here for only 2 hours at the Noah's Ark exhibit and it went by so quickly.  The interactive animals and displays are amazingly addictive that you'll go back and forth through th...

Parking is free here. I parked in the Northern parking lot. In addition, Bank of America has this "Museums on Us" program: http://museums.bankofa... / I showed them my BOA card (any BOA card), and I got in for free! This includes the Noah's Ark Exhibit, which you have to schedule a time at the front desk. To be honest, I have not followed Jewish culture, but this museum is about the history of Jews. Noah's Ark exhibit is best for kids. Adults cannot enjoy it as much, but for the kids, this place is the best! They give you a 2 hour time frame, I believe, for Noah's Ark. I would recommend any parent or guarding to take kids to this exhibit. They have a lovely rainbow arc that creates a rainbow from the mist, g...
