Specializing in photography, this privately funded space takes an innovative approach to displaying its digital and print works. More than just images on a wall, exhibits at the Annenberg often incorporate videos and/or music, creating a more dynamic experience for the visitor. The free admission and cheap parking help attract a younger crowd to the otherwise more corporate neighborhood. Bring a date on a Saturday evening and spend 30 minutes wandering through the gallery before catching a movie across the street at the Century City AMC. During the summer, Saturday evening concerts in partnership with KCRW turn the space into a vibrant hot spot.

I've been to the Annenberg for a number of its exhibits and I'm always impressed with the work they do. The team here curates such impactful, meaningful exhibits and tops it all off with a documentary that is not only entertaining but really brings the exhibit home to viewers. If you live in LA, you must see an exhibit here, and if you're visiting, I recommend seeing this and then heading to nearby Museum of Tolerance for a truly enlightening day.
The Annenberg is such a fantastic member of LA's already stellar lineup of museums. Their (always free) exhibits are created with top-notch curation and they always manage to utilize their space to achieve the greatest impact with the displayed photos.
We are so lucky to have the Annenberg here in LA. It’s a beautiful, modern space and every exhibit is so thoughtfully curated. I never thought I could look at over 100 photos of water and be so fascinated. The show they did in conjunction with National Geographic’s 125-year anniversary was one of the most beautiful, important things I think I’ve ever seen. And the space (which, by the way, is always free) is now teaming up with KCRW for Sound In Focus, a series of free outdoor concerts with music inspired by the museum’s latest exhibit.
