While there are a large number of things to do in Los Angeles, sometimes people want another take on what the city has to offer. Maybe they have already been to all the big attractions like Disneyland, Hollywood Bowl or the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and they want something different. Others might just be turned off from what everyone else likes. If you are traveling with someone like this or find yourself filling these shoes, try one of these places for a unique outing in Los Angeles.
Museum of Jurassic Technology - “Dedicated to the advancement of knowledge,” this fairly odd museum has exhibits like Garden of Eden On Wheels: Collections from Los Angeles Area Mobile Home Parks and Eye of the Needle: The Unique World of Microminiatures of Hagop Sandaldjian.
Japanese American National Museum - This museum has a rich collection of exhibits that highlight Japanese American culture and explores the one-of-a-kind community. However, the temporary exhibits steal the show through some extremely unique additions like the Giant Robot Biennales.
Amoeba - The largest independent record store in the world, Amoeba should be the first stop that any vinyl collector should go to as soon as they step foot in Los Angeles.
Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre - The starting company for many notable comedians like Ed Helms and Rob Corddry, the UCB Theatre is where you want to be for a memorable night of laughter and ridiculous tomfoolery.
Huntington Library - More than just a library, this location is an art gallery, science museum and rare book collection all rolled into one spectacular place. Full of impressive exhibits and inspiration art, the Huntington Library provides one of the best intellectual escapes available in Los Angeles.
