Concierge.com's insider take:

LACMA's permanent collection of over 100,000 works includes everything from extraordinary Asian antiquities to period costumes to contemporary artworks. It also hosts a steady series of temporary exhibitions, some so popular the museum has been forced to stay open into the late night. The various buildings on the museum's 20-acre campus have gone up at different times, in disparate styles; Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano won the commission (over Rem Koolhaas) to unify the museum, adding a 20,000-square-foot glass entrance pavilion, as well as a covered concourse linking the open spaces between buildings. The renovation included an expansion of the Ahmanson Building with a skylighted hall for music and art performances, lectures, and other public events.
