Fodor's Review

Architect Richard Meier, also responsible for the Getty Center, designed this sleek stone-and-glass building that holds a world-class collection of television and radio programs. You can search for more than 150,000 of them, spanning eight decades, on an easy-to-use computer, then settle into comfortable seating and watch them on monitors. A visit here is a blissful way to while away the hours. Craving a disco-infused, late-1970s episode of Sesame Street? It's here, along with award shows, radio serials, and hundreds of TV sitcoms. The library plays snippets of a variety of programs from a roast of Dean Martin to an interview with John Lennon. Free parking is available in the lot off Santa Monica Boulevard.
