Calling All Art Lovers: L.A. Museums

If you are going to, or considering going to, the Los Angeles, CA, area and like modern art, pop art, installations, Andy Warhol, and the like, then I definitely recommend you check out The Broad, a newer museum to the area.  I really enjoyed it when I went about a month or so ago. (Yes, I’ve gotten to the age where I say “Time goes so fast,” and then I feel old directly after it.)

They are still expanding and adding new things, and will probably change out exhibits again soon, but, to pique your interest:

I also recommend the following museums and gardens in the same area:

The Huntington Library (Pasadena) – Featuring a tea room, book exhibits, paintings, gardens, and more. This one is my favorite, and I always go when I can splurge a little and have tea there as well: a wonderful buffet full of cucumber sandwiches, cheese and crackers, fruit, and dessert as well as unlimited hot or iced tea and various different kinds of scones. Great for a birthday or other special occasion! (Be sure to make reservations in advance.)

 

The Getty Center – Gardens, paintings, and more…so well known of that I don’t think I need to say any more.

 

The Getty Villa (Malibu) – Same owners as The Getty Center, though the art here is more Greek-focused. (It has been too long since I’ve been there, so I do not have any photos anymore.)

And below is my “to-go” list. (I’ll try and check back in, and let you know what I think after I’ve gone. Follow me on Twitter for updates.) Are there any others not mentioned that I should consider adding to this list? If so, let me know!
