A number of fascinating exhibits are on display including Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson — The Visitors, a series of a number of large screens which captures a haunting melodic at times Bohemian music video shot in a mansion north of New York City. The video was shot in one take and runs for slightly more than an hour.

Visitors find themselves walking through the room at times to follow the action as it moves from screen to screen. Also easily identifiable works by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. A tiny gift shop greets visitors as you exit. Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at Stephen M. Three main highlights here are the actual exhibit hall which contains a number of small aquariums focusing on Southern California marine life — both plants and animals including some impressive sea anemones.

What sets this museum apart from other aquariums is not its size overall it is rather small but rather is its Exploration Center and Aquatic Nursery. The Exploration Center contains a number of microscopes for closeup viewing of sea life — staff and guides are on hand to interpret and help answer questions. Ongoing experiments and tanks growing live organisms including fish are on display.

The Aquarium is located in the Cabrillo Beach Coastal Park — be sure to pick up a walking map of this area at the Aquarium; this handout highlights the unique aspects of several parts of the nearby coastline. A white sand beach is located across the parking lot — overlooking a bunch of industry and marine cargo equipment.

This area and nearby park sometimes is a great place to escape the hectic hustle and bustle of the LA Freeways. For more information about the aquarium visit: We have visited and reviewed all three including the museums at each mission here: For art lovers, this is one museum you do not want to miss. The 12 room gallery contains the private collection of Dr. Tei Fu Chen — a world renowned herbalist and founder of Sunrider International.

For more information please visit: Chinese American Museum opened in and is located in what looks like an old movie set — but is actually a restored part of the original Chinatown. This site is the home of the original Chinatown in Los Angeles; its residents were forcibly removed starting in to make way for Union Station and the Hollywood Freeway.

The museum is housed in the last surviving structure of the original Chinatown. Today you are more likely to find Chinese merchants working in the surrounding area speaking Spanish.

This part of downtown is the oldest in Los Angeles and some of its oldest standing buildings are still standing. This area is known as the El Pueblo de Historical Monument, a acre public park. The mission of the museum is to educate the public about Chinese-Americans long rich cultural history in Los Angeles.

The museum is small; it did expand to the second floor in — allow about 30 minutes. From near the entrance there are good views of city hall nearby. The museum is located nearly across from Union Station and is a very short walk from here.

Be sure to visit upstairs to try your hand children and adults alike at The Science of Hockey exhibit with a Los Angeles Kings theme of course - representatives of the LA Kings were on hand to help with the overall design and layout of this exhibit.

It recreates a hockey stadium environment with the experience focusing on fun as well as the science and math behind the sport. Here you can shoot hockey pucks against a digital goalie our top speed was 42mph, we were informed that most of their shots are in the 5mph range due to the age of the kids! If you visit on the weekdays chances are you will share the museum with a number of students on field trips. Weekends can be busy with families.

The Cube is also available for birthday parties and other event rental options. Dominiguez Rancho Adobe Museum is located at S. Alameda Street in Rancho Dominigues within a short drive south of the 91 Freeway and near the Compton Creek which connects to the slightly further away, Los Angeles River. Pull in the long driveway, wind up the hill and park next to the adobe entrance.

This is truly an underrated historical site, still an unknown property by most Angelenos and perhaps under visited. Surrounded by many industrial neighborhoods, at first glance one is not aware of the rich history on this property. Remarkably the descendants of Juan Jose Dominiguez still own some property from the original land grant operating as Watson Land Company and the Carson Estates Company.

Guided tours of the old adobe home built in are given at 1, 2 and 3pm on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday and the first Thursday and Friday of each month. Admission is free and the tour usually lasts around 45 minutes and in reality often starts a few minutes past the hour. Part of the house is actually made from adobe — part is not and one can often notice a temperature difference when walking between the two sections.

After Juan Jose Dominiguez died never married and no children the land was passed to his only living relative — a nephew, Cristobal Dominguez. One of his sons, Manuel Dominiguez eventually became mayor of Los Angeles.

The Dominiguez family continued to oversee the land through successive generations and children eventually married into what are now families synonymous with this part of Los Angles: The interior of the adobe displays a number of furnishing of how the interior would have been decorated in the early years. Remarkably there is a small chapel contained within one of the rooms — family members used to take horse and wagon to downtown Los Angeles from here used to take upwards of two hours in those days — perhaps a similar length of time today when one makes this drive during rush hour and when this journey became to arduous for the aging parishioners they petitioned the church to be able to create a chapel at the adobe — and the priest came to them to hold mass.

A room worth spending some time exploring and reading the exhibits is the room that contains information about the Los Angeles International Aviation Meet. This was the first major airshow in the United States and was held at Dominguez Field, land once part of Rancho San Pedro — lasting for 10 days. It was the first time most people had ever seen airplanes — even William Boeing attended although he was not able to secure a seat in a plane during the entire event.

This room highlights this event and some the early aviation pioneers including the first women ever to pilot a plane, Raymonde de Laroche.

The Rancho was also the home of the Goodyear Blimp at one point. Prior to this, the land was used for grazing sheep and cattle. Also worth checking out next to the oil pump is the original windmill used to draw water from a well on the property. In surviving family members donated the adobe and 17 acres to the Claretian Missionary Fathers. It is located at N. Banning Boulevard in Wilmington in the midst of older residential neighborhoods.

And compared to the military based that used to encompass this part Los Angeles County 22 buildings over 60 acres only this one building and small footprint of the surrounding grounds are all that is left. Back then this military base was the U. It was built to protect the harbor if necessary and secure the area for the Union Army. There were enough Southern sympathizers living in this coastal area of California to make the Confederacy consider this as a possible addition to their states.

Especially when in a Confederate Brig. General was given permission by Confederate President Jefferson Davis to capture gold fields in California. Ultimately there were no Civil War battles fought on this land or in the region — the closest was in Tucson Arizona. However, men from this base were sent to fight in the Civil War. California certainly played a role in the war — over 17, Californians served during Today, the last building standing from the original outpost has been converted into a museum containing a rich and large number of era artifacts and military items.

The museum encompasses both floors of the building — all visits must be with a tour guide. Tours last approximately 90 minutes and are offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 10 and Appropriately enough, our guide for the tour was named America!

The tour slowly works its way through the house — each room is different and displays are dedicated to certain themes as they relate to the Civil War. An original signature from Abraham Lincoln is on a document hanging in one of the rooms — you will see this on the tour. The Dunbar Autograph book is unique — Captain Edwin Dunbar collected signatures of Union Generals and celebrities over 50 years — his great grandson donated this to the museum.

Many of the items contained in the museum are original — others are replicas ask if you are not sure. Getting dressed fashionably at the time was quite an endeavor, involving 5 separate layers. Check out both the Union and Confederate paper money — paper money was made for amounts starting at 5cents — the one on display here is for 25cents.

A parlor room shows how men spent their time relaxing — checker pieces were made from cut up small cobs of corn — some left natural color, others painted black to identify both side of the game. Hardtack was food for away from base — it it extremely hard and needs to be soaked in warm water before one can actually chew it — some of these are also on display.

An interesting exhibit worth spending some time looking at is titled, Medicine in the Civil War. With over , casualties and huge numbers of injuries — 16,00 physicians served. Diarrhea and dysentery were major problems. More information about each theme of the museum is listed on papers in each room — free to take should you want to learn more.

You might wonder why the statue of the camel sits in front of the museum -this is a tribute to when this army base had 18 camels. A well stocked gift shop is located at the entrance — era flags, books on the Civil War, olive oil and other war memorabilia is for sale.

During opening hours, admission is free — and is a popular spot prior to concerts. For a less busy time, come here during the day well before concerts — and the parking lot will be totally empty!

The museum is two stories — a small case greets visitors next to the front counter. This contains fossil fragments found on site by the head groundskeeper. Look closely one of these shells almost resembles the outline of the footprint of the actual venue.

Many famous musicians have performed at the bowl and the exhibits highlight some of them including the Beatles in who quickly sold out some 18, seats! The second floor features rotating exhibits — at the time of our latest visit, this part of the museum focused on noise pollution from the air including airplanes and helicopters.

This is the first water powered grist mill in Southern California — it dates from celebrated its th anniversary in It was originally built to service the milling needs of Mission San Gabriel about 2 miles from here. Note the walls — they are made of both oven-baked brick and adobe slabs the lower walls are some 5 feet thick! The mill itself featured horizontal milling stones that were pulled by local Indians to start or stop the wheel — aided in part by flowing water. The Mill itself features the main room where the milling took place which contains several historical artifacts as well as related history books for sale.

The lower room contains information about the mill itself. An upper room where the milled grain was originally stored is now home to a small art gallery paintings are for sale. A visit here is relaxed without crowds. Several old mill stones found by General George Patton when he was a child — he grew up in the area are located near the main entrance to the museum.

Over the years, the mill has attracted a variety of artists who have visited including Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor of Mt. Parking is in one part of a lot in the back directly behind the museum — this lot extends further and part of the lot is by permit only. Surrounding streets also provide free curbside parking although note that Wednesday is street cleaning day and you are unable to park on certain streets at certain times.

This is a well stocked impressive museum containing a vast array of historical and at times unusual and eclectic items covering a wide spectrum of topics. Over 8, square feet of space is filled to the brim with historical artifacts. There is so much here a quick walk through the museum is not enough time to absorb this all!

Some interesting items on display include a typewriter used by Mark Twain, a comptometer the first commercially successful key-driven mechanical calculator — first dating from El Monte was established in by wagon train pioneers the Oatman Expedition which came from Missouri — their first camp was located just west of the San Gabriel River.

These individuals built both the first public school in Southern California and Protestant Church. The museum has an informative display about this farm including several impressive looking lion teeth.

Newlyweds or newly deads. While it might seem a bit odd to be married at a cemetery — Forest Lawn also offers sites for weddings. Ronald Reagan was married here once. It is huge — from parts of the cemetery all you see is graves.

The Great Mausoleum is built of marble and very impressive. One of its most famous inhabitants, Michael Jackson is entombed here. The on site museum focuses on western bronzes, stained glass, historical American pieces and original paintings. Special exhibits sometimes are on display focusing on a specific theme.

As you enter Angels Park on 32nd street — if you look immediately at the entrance to your left up a small hill you will see a square chain link fence marking this spot. Their collections are huge — , ethnographic and , archaeological objects. However, while they have ample space, they certainly do not have enough space to display their entire collections at once.

As a result, exhibitions commonly rotate. The focus of the museum is on on works from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas—past and present.

Collections on display can be quite unique — during a recent visit, morbid Haitian art involving a number of skulls and esoteric Cambodian shop signs were among several collections on display.

One permanent collection on display is tribute to Francis E. Fowler was the owner of the Southern Comfort Corporation based in St.

Louis, distillers of the Southern Comfort liqueur. More than objects of silver are presented ranging in age from the 16th through 19th century — from Europe, Great Britain and the United States.

The woodwork inside is excellent and the Gambles placed a lot of attention to detail in the design of this house. The house is wired with electricity but the maximum wattage light bulb in was 15 watts, as a result the house is still dimly lit. The Gambles took a trip to Japan and returned with a number of items — both Western and Asian art have influenced the decorations. Two lucky architecture students are chosen each year to live in the house for one year. Movie trivia time — did you know that a scene in the movie, Back to the Future was filmed on the property.

The original garage which is now the bookstore appeared in that movie. Getty Museums Our Review here: Getty Center Our Review here: Grammy Museum at L. Live is located in the multi-billion complex that makes up LA Live — located on the western edges of downtown Los Angeles.

Guinness Book of World Records For global extremes, look no further than this museum.

In fact this museum is so full of information, you are almost overwhelmed everywhere you turn! It opened in as a silent movie theater — it is the second oldest theater building in Hollywood.

A museum such as this one would have to constantly be on the lookout for updates to records. During our visit, we found some of their exhibits were somewhat out of date — especially the one on sports and some of their celebrity exhibits.

As expected one of the focuses here is on celebrity records. Oh and we must not forget this one: Hours are limited to certain days — and guided tours are given of some of the homes. These tours are the main way to get into the homes — otherwise they are closed to the public. The guides dress in a period costume.

Today several benches sit in the lawn over looking the Los Angeles basin and can be a great place to enjoy a sandwich on a clear warm day.

Olive Hill is central to a visit here because of its height and prime location within Los Angeles — but the home is equally as important as are the theater, galleries and studios on site. A stop here is a respite from all the traffic and congestion that plagues this part of Los Angeles.

Tours of the home are only available at select times from Friday through Sunday — ticket sales on site open up 30 minutes before each tour. No photography is allowed in side.

This building dates from was originally a horse barn located about a block south of what is now the famous Hollywood and Vine intersection. Today it houses an excellent collection of historical Hollywood items as well as movie memorabilia. One of the main attractions is the office of famed director and co-founder of Paramount Studios, Cecil B. Cecil came west to get into film making and along with two other partners founded Paramount Studios in A large black and white photograph of an impressive set hangs on the wall.

It was taken of the massive set for the movie Intolerance which dates from This set was so large it was never taken down and remained in Hollywood for a number of years before finally being destroyed.

There is a ton of space inside — with exhibits spread out over 4 floors. The museum contains thousands of authentic Hollywood memorabilia including many photos, costumes, movie making equipments and other movie props. There are four floors including the scary basement which focuses on Hollywood horror films.

Certain exhibits rotate based on current interest — and usually focus on a very well known historic movie star. This is the Max Factor Building which used to be where the famed movie makeup man, Max Factor dolled up many of the most famous movie stars.

At the end of your tour you will have the option to use a touch screen to provide feedback on the museum as well as suggest additional celebrities not yet represented. Both museums have a number of the same celebrities.

Holocaust Museum is the oldest museum in the United States focusing on the events of the Holocaust. It was founded in by a group of Los Angeles based Holocaust survivors.

Their mission is to commemorate and educate people about the Holocaust. This museum is located at The Grove Drive. A small underground parking lot serving visitors to the museum is located directly under the museum. There are very few spaces here — the parking lot is steel gated and you need to buzz the attendant as you pull into the very short driveway. Admission is free although they suggest you donate. This is a state of the art museum, yet is small; at times you feel like you are in a bunker as the exhibits are contained within stark concrete rooms.

An iPod and headphones are provided offering information specific to each exhibit as you walk from room to room. One room has a large touch screen with photos floating on the screen — simply touch a photo and drag it to the edge of the screen to view more information about that particular person. The museum is interactive — a number of monitors and touch screens are available where you can listen to individual survivors speak of their experiences. Los Angeles media as it related to reporting on the events of the Holocaust is also incorporated into the exhibits.

LA Times articles are framed in a number of rooms. Tall black granite etched memorials stand outside the museum — one large stone for each year of World War II. It will be impressive to see most of these holes filled but at the time of our several visits perhaps only several thousand were filled. Many museums in Los Angeles close on Mondays and Tuesday or another day.

Not so with this museum — they are open 7 days a week. When you exit off of the 60 Freeway and drive to the this museum you will quickly see why this is a very appropriately named city. You will drive by miles of warehouses and often trucks pulling in and out of these.

However this Homestead Museum and grounds far predate these warehouses. The museum sits on a six-acre site that used to be part of the huge nearly 49, acre Rancho La Puente. Visits inside the estate are by guided tour only; entry is free Wednesday through Sunday at 1, 2, 3 and 4pm.

Select tours are also given in Spanish. An informative 15 minute video starts the tour followed by an in-depth guided walk of the grounds and homes with an extremely knowledgeable docent. Note that one of the descendants of the original families is also a docent here. It is extremely heavy — and was built with mud, horse hair, straw and other small rocks.

Also be sure to visit the El Campo Santo Cemetery on the property. It is a short walk from the Museum entrance or a short drive as the large parking lot extends all the way down to the cemetery. He was a family friend of the Workman-Temple families. From downtown Los Angeles take the Harbor Freeway north which turns into Arroyo Seco Blvd — then turn right on California and follow the signs to the entrance.

Opened to the public in the property features the grounds and art and library collection of Henry Edwards Huntington — heir to family fortunes made in the railroad business. Arguably the Huntington collection is one of the primary attractions within all of Los Angeles.

If only one part of the collection was presented to the public, this space would be rather impressive — but in this case visitors have access to carefully curated botanical gardens nine distinct gardens are open to the public. Over 14, species are represented in the gardens spread over acres. You can easily spend several hours in the gardens alone. The entire property is acres. The Japanese garden boasts a world-class Bonsai Garden — this and the the Chinese Garden are among the best outdoor venues at the Huntington for meditation.

And the Huntington has the biggest and most impressive cactus garden we have ever seen 12 acres in size. If this museum only contained the Botanical Gardens it would be a real treasure but there are three very well organized art galleries and the main library building. The American Art collection is housed in a nearby building. Five restaurant spaces are located on site including the Rose Garden Tea Room — only open in the afternoons on the weekdays — open all day on the weekends. The smells of food you come across while wandering the Chinese Tea Garden are not an olfactory aberration, rather are coming from the Freshwater Dumpling and Noodle House.

Outdoor seating is available overlooking a beautiful pond. Thankfully photography is allowed in any of the galleries no flash. For more information visit their website at: This museum has undergone a remarkable change in space and location.
