The plethora of must-see attractions in the Los Angeles area can seem daunting when trying to plan your ultimate visit. These four mainstays always offer interesting and enriching experiences for the whole family.
At The Getty Center, view one of the most premier collections of Western European artwork from the top of the city. The modernly-designed museum will give you breathtaking views of the entire cityscape while you soak up the artistic works from medieval times to the present. For a more immersive experience, take a trip to the coast and The Getty Villa. Built to resemble a Roman country house from ancient times, the grounds are art in itself. Housed within are 7,000 years of ancient art from the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire.
Autry Museum of Western Heritage
Relieve the art, history, and culture of the American West! With the mission to connect the past with the present, their collection of more than 500,000 artifacts comprise one of the most significant collections of Native American craftsmanship in the country. These works rotate annually to keep the exhibits varied and the experience different every time you visit.
Martial Arts History Museum
The only museum in the country devoted to martial arts, this newer entry to the LA cultural scene allows visitors to learn about the distinct traditional roles the discipline played in each Asian country.
