Los Angeles often gets knocked for being less sophisticated than east coast urban areas, usually for lack of culture.  The "LA LA Land" stereotype has been around for decades, associated with the glitz and surface image of Hollywood.  Sure, that exists ... afterall, this is the home of Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, along with hundreds of reality TV stars that won't show up on the New York Times best seller list anytime soon.  But LA also has some wonderful art and world-class museums that go overlooked in the rush to pile on the stereotype.  One of those cultural highlights is right in the heart of the city on Wilshire - the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or LACMA.

It will set you back $15 for one adult ticket to view all the current exhibits in all the buildings, and will take a good three hours.  Or you can walk through all the main buildings (minus the current shows) for free.  That's probably a good idea if you are bringing some kids along.  And the interactive exhibits are perfect for the young art lovers.  Check out the video below.
