We visited mainly for the Jim Henson exhibit, which is awesome, but looked at the other exhibits while we were there and wished we had more time to read everything as they were excellent. Would like to return in the future.

The Skirball is the next exit past the Getty, but very few folks know about it. It has a permanent exhibit Visions and Values which used to be dedicated to the holocaust and is now showing Jewish Culture from start to now. It is uplifting...More
