My hubby and I enjoyed ourselves here. We saw some interesting exhibits including the Statue of Liberty horizontal and chopped in half - kind of how most progressive folk are feeling right now as our liberty and human rights are suffering an onslaught from an...More

Nothing new or exciting at this museum. Dull, depressing art. Some art is definitely not for children if you have to have security tell you an installation piece is violent and not for children to see. Have seen this art for years now. Can see...More

A short walk from The Broad you will find MOCA. Arriving by car is not recommended.MOCA is surprisingly small and, in our company's sense, did not live up to expectations.The temporary exhibition of Anna Maria Maiolino became the highlight of the day

It's free from 5 to 8pm then. Go then. If you're really into modern art, you'll love it. If you're on the fence about spending $15 on any other day and time to see a bunch of clay ropes thrown on the floor and 15...More

Art devotees will want to put this on their to-do list, but I have to say it's a pretty expensive proposition at $15 per person for those with only a passing interest in contemporary art. I also have to mention that I found a lot...More

The museum of contemporary art is definitely something unusual. It is amazing what the artists can do with scrap and garbage.

We probably picked a bad time to visit the MOCA. This was late July/early August when new exhibitions were being installed so many of the galleries were closed, although were compensated with future tickets for free admission, good any time. I liked the collection, from...More

I visited this museum along with a conference in LA. Incidentally the hotel where I stay is not so far from the museum. Upon entering the museum I found many collections of artwork with various dimensions. Whether it's painting, photography and a three-dimensional sculpture. Many...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
