La MOCA is pretty small and just can't compete with The Broad. There are some quality works here, but, the collection and galleries as a whole are small in size and quality. Adding insult to injury is you have to pay to visit here and...More

This one-story museum of modern art has more than its size would suggest. My favorites included works by Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenbourg, Lari Pittman, Corita Kent, John Baldessari, and Franz Kline. At the time of visiting, Thursday evenings had free admission. The gift shop has...More

Came here when it was free one weekend. We did have to wait in line but it went by fairly quick. The art is very unique and you probably wont be able to find anything like it at other museums. Would reccommend.

As an art lover and an artist myself, I was extremely disappointed with this viewing experience. In fact, I would say I didn't even have one. Every time I wanted to get a better look or inspect the work closer, a docent was quick to...More

We went on Thursday night when it was free to get in. Focus was on an exhibition of Manny Farber. It was very well curated, and the works chosen to complement different aspects of Farber's work were perfect. Lovely

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

Usually easy to get in. I went on a Saturday and the line for the Broad Museum was around the block, but at MOCA there was no wait and no crowds so you could actually see the art.
