When did the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust open?
The Museum was founded by Holocaust Survivors in 1961. The Museum moved into its permanent home on October 14, 2010.
Is a reservation needed to visit the Museum?
No, you do not need a reservation unless your group is larger than 12 people. Reservations for groups are required if you would like a private, guided tour of the Museum and/or take part in a Holocaust Survivor Talk. You must book guided tours at least 2 weeks in advance of your preferred date. Groups larger than 12 people who do not wish for a guided tour of the Museum can visit without a reservation.
Is there a minimum number of people that I can bring for a tour?
Private tours are arranged for groups of 12 people or more. If your group is smaller, you will be able to participate in the daily public programming.
How much is admission?
Admission to the Museum is always free. We do suggest a $100 donation for groups that request a private, guided tour.
Where do we park?
There is limited free parking available in the Museum's underground parking lot, accessible from The Grove Drive. Visitors must announce their wish to park using the intercom at the driveway. Please be prepared to open your trunk and show I.D. Parking is for Museum visitors only.
Visitors to the Museum may also park in the Pan Pacific Park lot at 7600 Beverly Blvd. and access the Museum from the park.
Parking is also available in the pay parking structure at The Grove.
Is photography allowed in the Museum?
Visitors are welcome to take photographs or video for personal use provided that no tripods or flash lighting is used.
Are you affiliated with the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance?
We are NOT affiliated with the Museum of Tolerance. LAMOTH is solely dedicated to the history of the Holocaust and it is a different organization located in a different part of the city.
