Founded in 1965, the Museum is located on a 20-acre campus in the heart of Los Angeles. More than 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present are housed in five major buildings. LACMA is the largest and most comprehensive art museum in the western United States.
Strengths include Japanese art, modern and contemporary art, Latin American works from pre-Colombian to present, a significant collection of Islamic art, and a naturally lit, open-plan museum space with a rotating selection of major exhibitions.
The grounds also include a 600-seat theatre for public programs.
