The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) opened its doors in 1965, and has grown its collection to over 120,000 individual works since then. Spend a day roaming the galleries that contain artwork from antiquity to the present. Be sure to take at least one of LACMA's tours, which are short, fun, and informative.
