We specifically came to the Los Planeros perform, but, of course, we picnicked in the garden area and checked out the Sarah Mann photography installation as well. Personally, I have never been partial to their installations always wondering who chooses the works on display. ....More

If you haven't been, you need to make a visit. I just can't believe it is FREE!! You need to eat at the restaurant that is at the museum and make sure you walk around the gardens. It is a must see.

Inside and Out, this place is gorgeous. We go not even knowing what's going on or being displayed. The architecture and the grounds lend themselves to wandering, day dreaming and fantasizing ~ very inspirational. The exhibits are well presented and the tours or special events...More

Amazing views from the restaurant for brunch, eclectic traveling art collections, and brilliantly-maintained and operated facilities. Spend a day (no less than half), and experience it - it's more than a 'museum,' it's a star atop the crown that is West L.A.!

There is no "fine" dining. Just a table cloth restaurant, you'll find people wearing shorts. I wouldn't worry about shoes.
