MCA has a lot of challenging exhibits, more than many contemporary museums I've been to in the US. They get some great, major exhibits like Weegee and, recently, Kerry James Marshall's Mastry. However it's worth noting this isn't really the best place for kids. There's...More

Well, I don't regret the visit, great collection of course, but a little hard to compete with The Broad across the street. I guess if you don't have the time to visit both, check out current exhibits they host and see which one suits your...More

Andres Mosley exhibit featured mostly large cut lumber of various sizes stacked in unusual ways. Also was a long row of aluminium ingots. Worth looking at and appreciated, not an exhibit that I had hoped to see, from another artist. My timing to visit was...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
