a great collection of Judaica, well presented. also a great cafe to dine in. we go there every few years to see what's new and remind us of what's always there.
This is a great place to visit with kids under 6. The Noah's Ark is fantastic but make sure to get tickets in advance. During summer they have great shows on the weekend for kids.
We've been to a couple of events at the Skirball now and each time we've been so impressed with the exhibits. There is a charming little cafe in the center for lunch so you can go and make a day of it.
Skirball is set atop a hill overlooking the LA basin and the San Fernando valley. It's setting is just the first of its spectacular features. The venue features imaginative and informative exhibits that have been thoughtfully curated. Reachable only by car, insofar as I can tell, there is ample parking on-site.

The setting alone is remarkable; a modern building perched on a hill overlooking valleys reminiscent of Jerusalem. The permanent exhibit is a beautifully conceived and executed combination of historical objects and settings of Jewish life. The... More
Skirball is a real nice small museum with interesting exhibits. However, what I LOVE best about the museum is going out there with my grandkids. They have a section called Noah's Arc that is just heaven for kids, and the adults who love watching your kids. So many activities for the kids, and many planned special event. You will need... More
I sat there wondering how we can get a Noah's ark in London. My children spend hours every summer and never get bored. It is beautiful, imaginative and so well constructed. LA is lucky lucky lucky. Keep it up and let us all in on the secret of how we can bring something like it to other parts of the... More
