Before there was Google or Facebook or Wikipedia or the World Wide Web, there were newspapers. All over the world, when people craved current events, sports updates, entertainment happenings and global news they went to their newspapers.
Join us at the historic Los Angeles Times Building, located at 1st and Spring Streets in downtown Los Angeles, for a tour of a building which opened in 1935, and at the time, was the largest building in the western U.S. designed and occupied entirely as a daily newspaper publishing operation. The Globe Lobby, one of the highlights of the Times Building includes a historical exhibit showcasing the first 100 years of The Times.
Parking: Park at 213 S Spring Parking Garage ($15). Please allow ten minutes for parking and security check-in.
GATHER IN FRONT, DO NOT ENTER LOBBY. Cafeterias at The Times are available after the tour.
