Whether you’re a Tourist or a Townie, there’s always something different and fun to do in the Los Angeles area. But the cost of fun in the City of Angels can add up fast. Below is number 11 in a series of 25 things to do in Los Angeles that will cost $25 or less.
In light of recent news about racism on the part of such high profile people as Clippers owner Donald Sterling and cattleman Cliven Bundy, this might be a fitting time to look at ourselves and how we view the people in the world around us. What better place to begin that journey than at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles?
An educational arm of the world-renowned Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Museum of Tolerance invites its visitors to be a witness to history, to understand the bigotry of the Holocaust and other atrocities, to learn about the dynamics of intolerance and to realize how deeply embedded our prejudices are in the fabric of our culture. Photos and other relics on display will startle you and provoke thought. They’ll challenge you to become part of the solution to make a positive change. It’s indeed a humbling experience and one that will transform you for life.
Adult tickets cost $15.50, and there’s free parking under the museum, which is located at 9786 West Pico Boulevard. Check the Museum of Tolerance website for hours of operation and other information. Because the museum is often crowded with school groups, reservations are a must. To reserve your tickets, please call the museum at (310) 772-2505.
