One peek at the #RainRoom hashtag on Instagram will tell you that the inspiring art installation is total "Likes" bait. After a solid run at both New York's Museum of Modern Art and London's Barbican Centre, the wildly popular exhibit by London-based art collective Random International is finally making its way to Los Angeles this fall.

Set to hit the ground floor of LACMA's Broad Contemporary building, the Rain Room's LA jaunt will run November 1st through March 6th. Los Angeles Times notes that the piece is 2,500 square feet, and "features sensors that allow people to walk through falling water without getting wet. A museum spokeswoman said that 20 to 22 people will be allowed into the gallery space for each quarter-hour session. Five to seven people may move under the rain at one time."

Tickets for LACMA's "Rain Room" will run $10 for members and for visitors under 17 who purchase a general admission ticket. Everyone else will be required to buy a $15 add-on to their general admission ticket.
