What to see and do in 90 minutes at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
When we went to LA a few weeks ago we had a jam packed schedule. Chris used to live in LA and has so many friends there, but this was my first visit and we have no idea when we will be back so of course, I wanted to pack in as much as possible!
We visited the La Brea Tar Pits (check out the blog post all about it HERE) and had exactly 90 minutes between the time we finished at the tar pits and when we needed to head to our next destination. LACMA sits next to the tar pits so we wandered over to see if it would be worth a visit in our short amount of free time.
We grabbed a table on the patio at Ray’s and ordered crispy fries (HOLY COW THEY WERE PERFECTION) and drinks to sip on while we decided what to do. The spritz were refreshing on a particularly warm day and we quickly decided to buy tickets even if we would only spend an hour inside. We were factoring in our limited time as well as the fact that the museum is currently under construction as they build a new area that won’t be complete until 2024. There were limited exhibits open and available to view and we wanted to get the biggest bang for our buck. In the end I think we made the right choice! We were able to wander through two halls during our 90 minute timeframe and see incredible pieces of art that we would have missed out on otherwise!
Chris + Megan’s favorites:
As we exited the museum and made our way to the street to catch a LYFT we found the iconic, Urban Light, which has been featured in movies such as No Strings Attached and Valentine’s Day. I’ve seen it in movies as well as on Instagram and was delighted to see the light installation for myself!
I will always advocate to visit art museums while traveling and LACMA was a fabulous addition to our trip.
