If you are a modern art buff, you will have two great museum choices in Downtown Los Angeles thanks to The Broad Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
The Broad is a modern marvel that will impress modern art fans thanks to a great collection of modern art and astounding architecture. Make sure you reserve tickets online in advance - they're free!
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.
In other exciting news, The Broad Museum will be opening soon in 2015 and will house post-war and contemporary art collections. Best of all, admission will be free.
