This museum is enormous. It features all types of art from all different cultures and all types of art movements in the permanent collections. That includes American Art, Ancient and Islamic Art, Chinese and Korean Art, Costume and Textiles Decorative Art, Japanese Art, Modern and Contemporary Art, Photography, Prints and Drawings, South and Southeast Asain Art, and European Painting and Sculpture.
The neat things to see at this museum are the exhibitions. There are many exhibits that travel the nation and the world to be viewed at distinguished museums such as LACMA. These exhibits can feature an artist, a movement, an artistic medium, or even a culture or era. These---in addition to the permanent pieces---are what makes LACMA a must see on your visit through Los Angeles.

Our kids loved the tar pits, which are eerie but fun.

The automotive museum across the street is worth a look. L.A.'s museums are really not that great compared with New York though they seem to think that the new Getty had suddenly brought the rest of them to a higher level. There was even a recent article in the New York Times praising the LA museums. I, however, stick to the old joke, what's the difference between yoghurt and L.A.? Yoghurt has an active culture.
Let's face it, people come here for the sun and the plastic surgery. But, if you really want to see some good art, there's a good collection of galleries by the corner of Cloverfield and Olympic in Santa Monica.
