Visitors park in the garage before taking the tram up the hillside to this museum located at its peak. The exhibits rotate and cover art both old and new, but if they aren’t enough to impress your children, the beautiful gardens and breathtaking views should do the trick. Buildings are spaced so you have to walk outside between them, the better to get every chance to observe a huge chunk of the Los Angeles basin (smog permitting). Outdoor music events are often scheduled, check the website for a calendar.
