Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90049


  • Sun, Sat 10am-5pm, Tue-Fri 12pm-5pm
Perched like an eagle high up in the Sepulveda Pass, halfway between the Valley and the West L.A. basin, the Skirball is one of the country's leading Jewish cultural centers, but it also celebrates an impressively expansive variety of cultures, music and art from around the planet. Fittingly for such a broad-minded institution, the center is divided into a museum, galleries, a theater, Zeidler's Cafe and a fantastic re-creation of Noah's Ark. The Skirball's large stone courtyard, ringed by a rock-faced wall and towering trees, is the site of varied performance art, film and music events. Along with the Skirball's world-music concerts, the curators have invited in such indie rockers as Autolux and Superhumanoids. The museum features several levels of permanent and changing exhibits, along with a large gift shop. Lot parking.
