The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is one of the largest in Los Angeles, California. Working closely with its curators and artists to showcase their talents, LACMA is not afraid to push boundaries with diverse and multicultural exhibits. A family favorite museum with activities, an outside cafe and bar, there's something for every family member--even the millennial generation seems to enjoy the popular Urban Lights and magical Rain Room.

With new exhibits every month, LACMA is not disappointing with its current exhibits for Director and Screenwriter, Guillermo Del Toro.

At Home With Monsters

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Guillermo Del Toro is a famous household name for horror film goers, and he has the resume to prove it. Known for his gothic genre, Del Toro is pleased to share a glimpse of his Los Angeles-based Bleak House with this replica exhibit that will give fans an extensive look at about 600 of his personal objects, paintings, drawings, and collections. Who would have thought that monsters can be as multicultural as we are?

Guillermo Del Toro's At Home With Monsters exhibit begins with a walk through his childhood memories with drawings and paintings that inspired and influenced him at a young age. The exhibit expands to collections from movies like the cult-following "Hell Boy" and the dark but fascinating "Pan's Labyrinth." The displays are accompanied with original music by film composer, Gustavo Santaolalla. On display you'll find objects that can give ghoulish nightmares and yet, like Guillermo, we just can't seem to get enough of.

Mr. Del Toro was on hand for LACMA's press preview and described his fascination and love for monsters. He makes perfect sense with the fact that monsters are as diverse as we humans are, and they're not defined by how we see them, but by what they truly are without hiding. Could this by why Guillermo Del Toro believes that every church needs gargoyles? 

At Home with Monsters is currently open now through November 27, 2016.

It is advised to buy tickets in advance online or at LACMA's ticket booth, as this popular exhibit books quickly.
