  • Great museum with lot of amazing paintings from internationally renowned artists. The drive up the hill with the small „train“ is great fun, entry is free but good luck getting there without a car (parking available for a considerable fee). Narrow parking spaces underground. It’s a great place to just walk around and let your mind wander, beautiful views over LA as well.
  • Fun little tram ride up to the entrance of the Museum. It was very interesting seeing all the historical art inside, and the staff were very friendly. The outdoor areas were beautiful and had fantastic views into Los Angeles. All of this for the fantastic price of $0. Would highly recommend, even for those who just want to go for the views.
