A unique folk-art masterpiece, this 99-foot-tall group of steel towers is decorated with scrap metal, bed frames, bottles, ceramic tiles, and thousands of seashells. One of LA's famous local landmarks, the towers were created by a construction worker who toiled over them in his spare time for 30 years until their completion in 1954.

It's really nothing to look at. Not even sure why it's on the list of things to see and do. I guess it matters for some reason.

We went with a group of friends early on a Saturday. Make sure to do the tour! At first we were a bit disappointed because at a distance, they are not so impressive. When you go into the center and watch the short film, you...More

I have lived in LA for many years and did not know about the Watts Towers until I saw them in the movie La La Land. So, I finally took a trip to go check them out. The whole story behind it is interesting, and...More

This is my new favorite not-the-ordinary-outing for our out-of-town visitors. The towers are right there in the middle of a residential neighborhood, and the entire visit, including an informative tour, can be accomplished in under an hour (actually around 40 minutes if you timed it...More

This display is just towers of junk that someone threw together. I found it uninteresting and a waste of time. People have made a bigger deal of it than it is worth. Also, the attraction is in the Watts Area of South Los Angeles and...More

I've yet to see these towers in person but I think it's amazing anyway. It doesn't matter what the neighborhood is like. This is about one mans determination to make a difference. He gave people a reason to visit that town and I bet at...More

You will not be disappointed. Great way to spend a hour or two. Take the tour, watch the movie in the museum and look at some local art. Our tour guide, Howard, was funny, informative and kind.
