3 Best Museums in LA

Looking to spend a day getting lost in “exhibit land?” Check out our round up! 

1. The Grammy Museum (Glitz, Glam & Red Carpet)

Living in LA or Visiting LA and never having gone to the Grammy Museum might just be the craziest thing we’ve ever heard! This museum is packed with icons, celebrities, red carpet photo opps, theaters and views in the heart of LA Live. The Grammy Museum is 4 floors and tops the “studio experience” when it comes to authenticity. When Megan Thee Stallion HERSELF, offers up her shoes and dress to this iconic place, you know it’s worth going to. Plus, what are the “blogger” murals around town missing? A RED CARPET (obviously.) The Grammys Museum has one of the most sought after photo-opps in town, a step & repeat waiting just before the Red Carpet exhibit, where you’ll see knods to everyone from Taylor Swift to Harry Styles.

2. The Getty Museum (History & Culture )

Explore ancient Egyptian traditions, art from the middle ages, modern architecture and even  the study of time. The Getty Museum is one of the more educational centers in Los Angeles when it comes to general human history! Can’t make it to Europe to explore ancient ruins or cathedrals? The Getty will have something for you.

3. LACMA (Art! And LOTS of it.)

All about getting artistic! From modern day takes on snap chat to traditional portraits, the LACMA museum is a place to see others’ projects come to life and foster ideas fro your own. It is enclosed by an artistic bundle of towering light pillars, as seen in films like No Strings Attached & Valentines Day. These pillars are a routine stop for LA natives and tourists alike looking to capture grammable (or tik-tok worthy) content. There is also a cafe/restaurant sitting outside the museum, overlooking the pillars that’s a great stop for date night or a day out. My hubby and I stopped in for a Valentines Day menu one year and did not regret it. The museums programming alone can keep one busy year round with events and exhibits for all your senses.
