This exhibit requires timed entry tickets to ensure it is never overcrowded, but it is definitely worth the planning. The animals are all made of re-purposes materials, like the tortoise shell made of footballs or the gorilla arms made of tires. They are sturdy and...More

Super cool exhibit showing the dynamic and vibrant work of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein! Inspired by comic book art, with bright flashes of colors! Lots of bold lines and dots, and although so simple, has subliminal messages and double meanings which are very thought provoking!...More

Drive up to the Skirball if you're in L.A., particularly if you're Jewish. There are always fascinating exhibits going on, fun activities for children, and there's a fine cafeteria/dining hall as well.
