Museums
The Broad is two floors filled with canvases, sculptures, and immersive installations that will you give you sensory overload from the moment you step foot inside. The Broad is the kind of museum that even non-museum-lovers can appreciate, because the collection’s varied enough that there’s something for everyone and they always seem to have special installations coming in and out so be sure to be on the lookout because sometimes they require booking in advance. What to know before you go: The Broad is open 11am to 5pm Tuesday and Wednesday, 11am to 8pm Thursday and Friday, 10am to 8pm Saturday, and 10am to 6pm Sunday. General admission is always free, but it’s done through a reservation system, so plan ahead.

While the art inside the Getty Center comes from world-renowned artists like Michelangelo and Van Gogh, the lush, perfectly manicured garden outside is equally impressive. The architecture and views from the Garden Terrace alone are worth a visit, just to stroll the museum grounds and take in the spectacular views of the city. Of course, the permanent collection on display is no slouch either, and includes European and American art from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum’s sister property, the Getty Villa off PCH, focuses on Greek and Roman art -- in case it wasn’t obvious from the classic Roman columns and country house design. What to know before you go: The Getty Museum is open 10am to 5pm Tuesday through Friday and Sunday, and 10am to 9pm Saturday; admission is always free. The museum offers daily architectural tours, and a summer concert series called Off the 405, as well as other events year-round.

If you’re in the mood for a star sighting (as in Alpha Centauri, not Mena Suvari), you’ll love Griffith Observatory. Free public telescopes are available every night and while most locals skip the dome, you’ll find the 290-seat Samuel Oschin Planetarium inside, offering three live projection shows presented by a storyteller. And whether you decide to drive or hike to Griffith Observatory, you’ll always leave starry-eyed after enjoying the best views of the famous Hollywood Sign. What to know before you go: The Griffith Observatory is open 12pm to 10pm Tuesday through Friday and 10am to 10pm Saturday and Sunday, and admission is always free.

LACMA is definitely one of LA’s coolest attractions. Outside it has the famous row of lights that attract a number of tourists and there’s a lot of other cool art inside that’s worth checking out. It also has a solid (but pricey) outdoor restaurant called Ray’s & Stark Bar, which is great for happy hour or a bite between exhibits. The Jazz at LACMA summer series is a free outdoor performance by SoCal jazz musicians with special appearances in the past by jazz legends like John Clayton, and Billy Childs. What to know before you go: LACMA is open 11am to 5pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 11am to 8pm on Friday, and 10am to 7pm Saturday and Sunday.
