If you are into what they display you will like it. I could not care less. What I really liked was the beautiful park in front of FIDM. Very attractive and a place to sit and relax and stay cool.

Wow! This is by far my favorite costume exhibit I've seen in a very long time! It was so neat to see movie costumes up close and in person. Better still they weren't behind glass and difficult to see against museum lighting!!! It's a shame...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
