I visited the gallery on Thursday. Free entry on every Thursday between 5 to 8 pm. Exhibition was mostly good. Good experience

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

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

Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
