Welcome to LACMA!

Our galleries are open and our outdoors spaces are filled with art, live music, art-making activities for all ages, fine and casual dining, and quiet spots to relax. Located in the center of Los Angeles, LACMA is here for your inspiration and discovery.

The museum’s first priority is the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. Please do not visit if you are sick and always practice frequent hand sanitizing. Wearing a mask indoors is strongly recommended.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
