If you are a modern art buff, you will have two great museum choices in Downtown Los Angeles thanks to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
MOCA Grand Avenue
First, there is MOCA Grand Avenue. MOCA is the only museum in the city that features only contemporary art. The collection includes Minimalist, Abstract Impressionist, Post-Modernist and Pop Art.
Make sure you plan ahead, since the museum is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Thursdays are FREE from 5pm-8pm.
MOCA Geffen Contemporary
The Geffen Contemporary in the Little Tokyo district of downtown is home to a collection of more unwieldy and playful collections and exhibits. Like the Grand Avenue museum, Geffen is also closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and free admission is available on Thursdays from 5pm-8pm.
