AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Since opening in the mid-60s, LACMA—the largest art museum in the West—has grown in a series of unrelated architectural styles and continues to expand. Most recently, the Renzo Piano-designed Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM) popped up between the former May Company department store (now part of the museum campus) and the main building housing the permanent collection. The big surprise was, after donating $50 million toward the building named for him, philanthropist Eli Broad announced he was hanging onto his renowned art collection, thank you very much. Next in line? The Piano-designed Resnick Pavilion, opening in October, 2010. LACMA is a far better museum than it’s credited to be, and the frequent special exhibitions are always worth checking out. On summer Friday nights insiders show up for free outdoor jazz concerts.
