The Museum of Contemporary Art or MOCA, is one museum with the bonus of three locations. MOCA is devoted to contemporary art. Founded in 1979, its collection includes more than 6,800 works.
The museum calls three facilities home: MOCA Grand Avenue, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Little Tokyo, and MOCA Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. What’s on view at MOCA Grand Avenue is constantly changing, so be sure to check the schedule when you are in Los Angeles. Writing and sketching are allowed in the galleries in pencil, but photography is not permitted.
MOCA Grand Avenue is open five days a week. It is closed Tuesday and Wednesday. MOCA Grand Avenue does not have a parking structure, but visitors can use the Walt Disney Concert Hall (2nd Street, between Grand Avenue and Hope Street, or on Lower Grand Avenue) for $9 with museum validation. Using public transportation, take the Metrolink Red Line to Pershing Square, or DASH Downtown Route B.
