Who says art has to be all about brushes and skilled hands? Some of the most inspiring and at times haunting pieces of art are the images captured by the most accomplished photographers in the world. Fans of photographic art have a special venue to visit during their stays at Holiday Inn Burbank.
Welcome to Annenberg Space for Photography.

The Victorian Age in Los Angeles
On May 16 from 8:30 AM until 10:30 PM, Annenberg Space for Photography takes visitors on a visual field trip called The Victorian Age in Los Angeles. The visual field trip takes visitors back in time to the Heritage Square Museum located in Pasadena, California. Heritage Square docents lead you on a tour of three historic homes that you can capture using your photographic skills. Spend time at the Heritage Square Museum that explores the settlement and residential development of Southern California during the first century of California’s statehood. Every one of the eight structures on display at the museum was designed and built during the Victorian Era of architecture. The Victorian Era structures offer the perfect backdrop for a discussion about what life was like for Southern Californians at the end of the 19th century and at the start of the 20th century.
Located at 2000 Avenue of the Stars in Los Angeles, Annenberg Space for Photography opens at 11 AM and closes at 6 PM on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The cultural center opens at the same time on Thursday, but it closes an hour earlier. Free admission makes visiting Annenberg Space for Photography a must for families who stay at Holiday Inn Burbank. From our hotel, take the 5 south to California State Highway 134 east.
