GAMOLA

Garifuna Museum of Los Angeles

BUITI WEYU!   WELCOME!   BIEN VENIDOS!

The Garifuna Museum of Los Angeles (GAMOLA) is the first and only one of its kind in the United States and Northern Hemisphere.   Visitors can learn all about the unique heritage and culture of the Garifuna people: from their daily life activities to their art, medicine, religion and unique rituals.  The essence of Garifuna life can be relived and imagined through its varied collections of artifacts, models, and art, currently housed in three separate galleries.

ABELUHA!   VISIT US!  VISÍTENOS! 

Centrally and conveniently located in Los Angeles at 1523 West 48th Street just east of Denker Avenue, the museum is only 10 minutes from downtown Los Angeles off the interstate 110 Freeway, and about 5 minutes from the University of Southern California (USC) campus. The museum is generously hosted at The Blazers Learning Center, a non-profit organization since 1969.

GAMOLA is open for visitor walk-ins on Saturdays from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. For weekday visits call (424) 218-6212 or (323) 292-2261 to schedule a personal tour of the museum.

There is no entrance fee but your donation is most welcomed.
