Los Angeles – Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) – Grand Avenue

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) consists of three locations. The “main” location (which is refer to here) is on Grand Avenue next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Once you enter the museum you are directed to the right where you start with the older pieces and work your way up. It seems relevant now to point out that contemporary art cay be an acquired taste. Also, I am not the most knowledgeable person about art; I am worried that I will accidentally stand and stare at an old fire extinguisher or a stain on the wall.  Contemporary art can be an acquired taste.

If you want to flex your contemporary art muscles you came to the right place. Plan on spending about an hour or so exploring the art here, which highlights some major contemporary art movements. When you finish you can grab something to drink at the neighboring restaurant/cafeteria Lemonade. I suggest sticking with the lemonade, since ordering food can be a confusing and expensive experience.

Money saving tips: A ticket gives you admission to both the Grand avenue and the North Central Avenue location on the same day. Students get half off! They also offer free admission on Thursdays from 5-8 (thanks to Wells Fargo).

Cost: $9 parking (under the concert hall) + $10 per ticket

Address: 250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, Ca. 90012
