The Skirball Cultural Center is about as welcoming as any museum that I have ever experienced. Staff bend over backwards to see that you have enough information, guidance with exhibitions and food venues. We visited the Paul Simon exhibition which was laid out in such...More

Super cool exhibit showing the dynamic and vibrant work of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein! Inspired by comic book art, with bright flashes of colors! Lots of bold lines and dots, and although so simple, has subliminal messages and double meanings which are very thought provoking!...More

Drive up to the Skirball if you're in L.A., particularly if you're Jewish. There are always fascinating exhibits going on, fun activities for children, and there's a fine cafeteria/dining hall as well.

It was a well-done review of Jewish history with a series of rooms of memorabilia as well as stories of Jews through-out history. Also great for kids is the Noah's Ark. All the characters are made from recycled items. And there are places for children...More

Whether it be for religious reasons or festive parties, this museum is wonderful. Their distinct showings and displays are always different. Interesting and fascinating information about Jewish culture and history. Should you want a lavish dinner or calming luncheon, the ballroom area is lovely. Nestled...More

I spent a few hours walking around Skirball Cultural Center and it was very informative as well as learning history. I watched a documentary entitled "The Queen Has No Crown" and having a snack off the cart in the lobby.

This was quite a bit out of our way but we really wanted to see the Lichtenstein exhibit. The entrance fee was reasonable but the exhibit was actually quite small and disappointing. I was also a bit disappointed in the cafe as there is nothing...More

Thank you "Skirball" for your quick response! Another question, if the area for *advanced tickets* for Noah's ark is "grey" online- does that mean they just aren't available ahead or completely sold out? Or is it they could possibly still be reserved at the door if available? (Hope that made sense)

You must either book in advance, or call to guarantee tickets to Noah's also tickets are available on a walk up bases on Thursday, or if available anyday. Call them for specifics as TripmAdvisor does not allow us reviewers... More
We will be visiting for the first time during Winter Break- though the notion of "free Thursday" is wonderful- just curious is it worth the crowd or better to go during another day of the week?
