  • What I mean by the title is when you compare MOCA with the other museums and architecture on the same street or nearby, it's relative. We visited Disney Hall, the Broad as well one after the other...

  • Current exhibit (July 2021) at MOCA is one of the worst I have ever seen i the 20 years I have been visiting this museum! One exhibit has a "fan" on display which I assumed was to help move the air....  more

  • Went with my friend recently and had a wonderful time. The curatorial staff and attendants are particularly kind and helpful. Specifically I want to thank Camilla for her in-depth knowledge of some of the exhibits. It really helped me feel connected to the work to understand that one of the pieces was created in Inglewood and what it meant. Thank you MoCA, thank you Camilla. I'm so excited to show this museum off to my friends. :)
  • The museum is a big round walk from the old to the newer or vice versa. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and warm. The addition of the face to the canvas with Rothko was amazing. Make sure to watch all the video parts, including "The Sun's Steyerla Factory", which is fantastic and much more than just a video installation.
  • Mods museum is a amazing place me and my girlfriend went and I loved it and so did she we had fun but were kinda disappointed about how much rooms there were they had a small amount of rooms and I think the price is a little to high for the amount of rooms but it is beautiful and amazing place for pictures definitely worth the first time but wouldn't go again.
  • Well known contemporary art museum in the middle of downtown. Right now it's free (with online reservations required), so you can't beat the value! The exhibitions are pretty much what you'd expect from a modern art museum. It's got more of an emphasis on drawings, paintings and photos rather than installations, but there are some sculptures and experiential pieces as well. I slightly prefer the Broad across the street for that reason, but if you're really into art you'll still get a lot out of it. If you're breezing through, you'll be done in thirty minutes. An hour is plenty of time to budget for a visit. Come check it out.
  • Love MOCA! I came for Mark Rothko’s painting. Also, I was so impressed by Alberto Giacometti’s artwork. * Vaccine Card is required!
