The museum is very comfortable. It isn’t big but the permanent collection was interesting. We like the flow of the space. The photography show was interesting. Overall we enjoyed. A little expensive.

I'm a little surprised to see the range of reviews regarding MOCA. Yes, MOCA is smaller than the highly popular Broad down the street, but it holds its own with its impressive modern art collection and flow of the building. The Rothko room is breathtaking....More

There is a lot here for everyone. Yes, there is a section dedicated to the multiform paintings of Mark Rothko which I always think of when someone says modern art. But there is also a lot of photography, pop art, sculpture from "found" objects, and...More

I was familiar with this museum when it first opened. It was an important update to the LA art scene, and a decent piece of post-modern architecture. What has become of it is interesting - not especially for the better. The architect, Arata Isozaki, must...More

Maybe because I always thought it housed a much bigger collection, maybe because it was right next to the newly opened Broad. It was a nice but not a wow experience. However, if you can coordinate between going to the nearly attractions, then it is...More
