Exhibits and Performances in Los Angeles

A glimpse of what to experience this season and throughout the new year, from the reopening of Los Angeles’ Children’s Museum to New York’s annual Winter Show, which delights in the world of antiques


May 2019

Los Angeles’ only children museum has left Museum Row for its new home at Santa Monica Place. The Zimmer Children’s Museum will officially retire its name, as well, for a new title: the Cayton Children’s Museum by ShareWell, in honor of a generous gift from Barry and Andrea Cayton. Having outgrown its former space, the museum has taken on a blank slate for new design and innovation while also doubling its previous exhibition space to feature more attractions. Leading the charge is R&A Architecture + Design duo Shawn Gehle and Brooks Atwood, along with exhibit designer Dan Wodarcyk from S2 Associates, who worked on the Bay Area Discovery Museum. The mission for the designers is to create a hands-on space that inspires imagination in children, parents, caregivers, and other visitors, and allows patrons to experience the exhibits in a unique way. The museum will makes its debut in May 2019.
