Perfect for anyone who loves art and the strange
Sep 2020
Don't research it, just go!

This is the top spot I refer people to when they visit LA. Perfect for anyone interested in contemporary art, specifically institutional critique. I've visited several times, and I always find something new when I go.

Probably not an ideal museum for children.

Step away from expectations
May 2020 • Couples
This is one of the best places in LA. Its hidden treasure can only be appreciated if you leave pretense on the sidewalk.

I went several times, took different people that i thought could understand what they were immersed in. Don't go here expecting MoMA. I hope you leave with a feeling that they are equivalent experiences. Im only writing this because there's a 2point rate with a long dissertation dissing this place.

Unique objects and unique location
Jan 2020 • Friends
I'll never work out what was real, what is myth and what was totally made up just to see what they could get away with! And the wonderful thing is I don't care.

It's fun, well presented and guaranteed you'll not see similar items anywhere else.

Loved the micro mosaics and the tribute to space dogs. "3D X-rays" were also great.

Not worth

Don't go if you are not fond of ancient history, especially European history. The exibits are not appreciable at all. Waste of time. Nothing great.

Obscure, Random, a Trip in Time
Nov 2019 • Family
The Museum of Jurassic Technology is unique, to day the least. Wandering through a narrow maze of dimly lit dioramas and exhibits that showcase obscure heroes of technology from ancient times to mid last century, this is most certainly a learning opportunity and definitely a trip back in time to museum technology and etiquette of 30 years ago with its Do Not Touch” and “No Photography or Cell Phones” admonition. But still, the opportunity to celebrate dogs in space, 1930s mobile home technology, and the origins of medieval medical superstition makes the place a must-visit. And did I tell you about the miniatures? You would not believe...

Difficult to Describe, but fascinating and worth a visit
Sep 2019
Interesting exhibits from micromosaics made of butterfly wings that must be seen through a microscope, to exhibits of foklore, myth, and more, -- all presented in very interesting ways. Has a lovely Tea Room for tea and cookies, and a rooftop garden with white doves.

My cup of tea
Jul 2019 • Couples
Having read the reviews, I was anxious to visit. This museum is perhaps not for everyone but it was certainly my cup of tea. To Begin with I should mention the no photo policy but where else can you buy viewmaster slides of exhibits? Essentially if this idea appeals to you this is your spot. I should mention that I am the proud owner of one and purchased the micromosaic slide.

The museum itself is well put together with impressive showcases. There are these nifty “glasses” that you look through at some exhibits that show imagery. I found it to be a celebration of unknown scientists, engineers and artists. It was comforting to see their efforts lovingly preserved and displayed. There were some parts where additional information would’ve been helpful but all in all it is awesome for the right person. And yes they have tea and cookies.

It's Weird, you should go!
Aug 2019
An amazing, tiny, dark, cramp, unsettling and fantastic museum. Don't research it too much, just expect to be mystified and befuddled and confused and amazed. One of my favorite places in the world, and it's right across from downtown Culver City. Worth a visit.

Takes some thought
Jul 2019 • Friends
In reading the reviews, it appears a lot of people don't "get it". Not going to give it away here, but read the labels...very interesting place. Intriguing exhibits. Quirky. Lots of little rooms, alcoves. The tea room on top was pleasant. I think the funeral for the space dogs was hysterical...

Nice low key attraction on a hot day.
Jun 2019 • Family
Took my 3 kids (9, 12 & 14) here as a break from the beach. The place kept them interested for a couple of hours. Entrance fee is super reasonable. Its a nice, quite museum that is much larger than it appears from the outside. Probably better for the inquisitive child, not so much for the high energy/short attention span child which my youngest is. Very nice outdoor area on the roof where one can have some teas and cookies on the house!
