Los Angeles County Museum of Art (i.e., LACMA) is the most photographed museum in Los Angeles. The reasons are Urban Light and the Rain Room.
The museum has an extensive artwork collection. In addition, there are many exhibits from famous artists like Tim Burton, Guillermo del Toro, Picasso, and Stanley Kubrick. The museum is a bit of pop culture blended in with art collections from Southern California’s diverse ethnic landscapes. In addition, it’s right next to the Los Angeles tar-pits in one of LA’s better neighborhoods.
To be honest, I don’t even anyone who has actually gone inside of the museum besides myself. The museums’ main attractions are Urban Light and the Rain Room. Social media is flooded with pictures of Urban Light and the Rain Room. To this day, my favorite exhibit has been the Tim Burton one. The exhibit displayed Burton’s eccentric mind and his creativity process with his sketches. Urban Lights’ is to LA as the Bean is to Chicago. This blog entry’s main picture is an example.
Like the Geffen at MOCA, LACMA offers free general admission from 3 PM to 5 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and 3 PM to 8 PM on Friday for LA county residents. In addition, LACMA offers free general admission to everyone on the second Tuesday of every month. It’s probably best to visit the museum during those days to save yourself the 15 USD entry fee. Plus, there’s always promos going on. The good news is that Urban Light is located in front of LACMA and it won’t cost a dime for your Instagram picture. It’s as iconic as the Hollywood sign or the LAX sign.
