“David Geffen MOCA location, S. Central Ave, LA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

A truly unique experience, this museum is located in a former police garage and is a huge, airy space filled currently with a Land Art exhibit that is fascinating. This is a multi-media, partially interactive exhibit using many different materials to express various perspectives. The admission price is low with various fees for students and seniors. Good stop to make after going to bustling Olvera Street, shopping and having margaritas. Parking nearby.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

With the limited variety of choices for fixed museums in Los Angeles compared to other bigcities in the country MOCA really stands out for its collection and exhibits for contemporary art

“Lot to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Fun, eye catching, thinking pieces, some just fun to view. One of the fun things was to spot an one artist's works in multiple locations, and look for others.

“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Always interesting works with which to engage. I can always remember the different exhibits viewed at MOCA. It's also a matter of footsteps from the wonderful Japanese American National Museum and other attractions in Little Tokyo.

“not an artsy guy, but enjoyed myself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

The exhibits opened my eyes to a bunch of art, I never would have seen. Worth checking out and exploring even if you are a casual fan of the arts.
