  • Note: LACMA is temporarily closed. While LACMA’s mission is to celebrate centuries of creativity and inspiring human endeavors, our foremost priority is the health and safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and neighbors. Following recommendations from Los Angeles County and in coordination with our sister institution, the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County, LACMA closed temporarily to the public effective Saturday, March 14 until further notice. Hancock Park and our public sculptures remain open and accessible, but please continue to practice physical distancing. Based on guidance from state and county public health officials, the museum is preparing plans to safely reopen our galleries and event venues.  Some events will transition to digital platforms until groups are able to safely gather. Please email us at if you are interested in hosting an event. We look forward to resuming on-site events soon and welcome a chance to talk with you.
