Visit the Skirball Cultural Center to see the presentation of the legendary Leonard Bernstein at 100 years. The display will open in late April 2018 and will present much information about Bernstein's musical contributions.

The Skirball Cultural Center offers an exhibition of Judaic culture. For the adults there are displays of art, and for the kids there is Noah's ark where kids can play with the exhibits while learning the biblical story.
