Need help planning your itinerary? Los Angeles Charter Bus Company has narrowed down a list of the top 5 art museums in LA so that you can explore the best the city has to offer.
Bigger is Better at the LACMA
Located on the Pacific Rim, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest art museum on the West Coast. It has a collection of nearly 4,000 objects that highlight over 6,000 years of artistic expression around the world. Famous collections include Gods and Goddesses from the Egyptian civilization, changing fashion from the 1900s to the early 2000s and a series of Greek, Roman and Etruscan busts. Let’s not forget the world-famous Urban Lights installation, which is part of LACMA’s permanent artworks and a prominent Los Angeles landmark.
Gather your group and make this museum the first stop on your itinerary. LACMA hosts a variety of private tours held before or after hours, ranging from $300 to $450 for a group of at least 10 guests. Los Angeles Charter Bus Company can help your group of 10 or more book an 18-passenger minibus for a safe and comfortable journey to the museum. In addition, when your group travels together, they’ll be able to avoid long admission lines and enjoy the current exhibitions as soon as possible.
Feel On Top of The World at the Getty Center
The J. Paul Getty Museum collection consists of the Getty Villa and the newly renovated Getty Center. The former is a recreation of the Villa dei Papiri, an ancient Roman country house, and it offers a taste of life in the Eternal City. While the latter is the complete opposite– it resides on a hilltop in the Santa Monica Mountains and seeks to incorporate a modern architectural design mirroring the beauty of nature.
The art and design in both of these cultural institutions is a sight for sore eyes. Visit both of these centers over the weekend with a private shuttle. The climate-controlled interior will ensure you’re cool and comfortable despite the hot weather, while the panoramic windows will provide your group with a stunning view of the Pacific ocean, surrounded by the breathtaking San Gabriel mountains.
Delve into Contemporary Art at The Broad
Known for its honeycomb exterior, The Broad is a contemporary arts museum housing over 2,000 modern and postwar works. The construction of the building follows a ‘veil and vault’ concept that shapes the viewer’s experience the second they enter. Notable exhibitions at The Broad, include Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963 – 1983, and Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet The Sun Again.
Planning group transportation to The Broad has its perks– while you’re not allowed to take your selfie sticks, tripod stands, or easels inside the museum, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring them at all. Store all your travel essentials in the overhead cabins on your bus and utilize them later in the day when you want to take pictures of LA’s fiery pink sunsets or while you’re walking around the hotspots of the downtown area.
A Glimpse of Latin America at the MoLAA
The Museum of Latin American Art holds a special place in the hearts of many citizens, as it is the only institution in the United States that is dedicated solely to the appreciation and expansion of Latin American and Latino art. It is housed in an incredibly unique structure surrounded by an outdoor sculpture garden. Almost every exhibition in this museum seeks to challenge and educate the status quo, such as La Huella Múltiple and Judithe Hernández: A Dream is The Shadow of Something Real.
A dream come true for all artists and architects alike, the MoLAA is a must-see attraction on your Los Angeles itinerary. By booking a charter bus ahead of time, your art group will have ample space to store their paints and brushes, while the electrical outlets will ensure all their devices are fully charged, ready for a long day of photographing.
Catch the Best of Pop-ups at the MOCA
With three distinct venues in the city, the Museum of Contemporary Art seeks to educate the public on the art of our time. This museum is particularly famous for its pop-up installations that address sensitive topics such as politics, racial identities, gender, and sexuality.
Plan a trip to all three locations with Los Angeles Charter Bus Company. Your driver can pick and drop-off your group to the MOCA Grand Avenue, followed by The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and ending at the MOCA Pacific Design Center, all in one day. Moreover, the free WiFi and restrooms on board will ensure that everyone is satisfied and entertained throughout the journey.
