MOCA Pacific Design Center

West Hollywood & Mid-City

Standing a bit forlorn amid the glassy behemoths is the small satellite branch of Downtown’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Exhibits usually have an architectural or design theme. Entrance is off San Vicente Blvd.

Check the website before setting out, as it may be closed between exhibitions. Parking is free for the first 20 minutes, and $1.50 per 20 minutes thereafter.
