Of all the museums in LA, the Museum of Illusions is probably the only place that highly encourages guests to take photographs. The museum features several mural paintings that you can pose with and make it seem like you are part of the concept. You can choose to be almost falling on lava flowing within the cracks of a pavement, pretend to be drawing on a giant comic book using huge sharpies, or be Kate Winslet for a moment as she drifts near the sinking Titanic. Families and friends will surely have a blast posing together in different illusions featured on the walls and floors.
2. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art
More popularly known as LACMA, this museum is known for an exhibit called Urban Light. It features 292 antique cast-iron street lamps that were restored and installed in close proximity with each other. The exhibit was constructed by Chris Burden in 2008 and it became a significant LA symbol after it was featured in films like Valentine’s Day and No Strings Attached.
3. Griffith Observatory
Even before the Griffith Observatory was featured in the award-winning film La La Land, it was already one of LA’s most popular cultural attractions. From up there, you get a good view of the Pacific Ocean, Downtown LA and the beautiful slopes of Mount Hollywood.
4. The Getty Center
The Getty Center, a museum located in the Santa Monica Mountains, is known for its stunning exterior.
