Skirball Museum, Los Angeles Photos

The Skirball Cultural Center & Museum (1996) on Sepulveda Blvd. in the hills above Westwood relates a Jewish people's history. The several modern arched buildings were designed by Moshe Safdie. One unique feature is the Noah's Ark children's play area which is a major & amusing work of art in itself.
