We attended a walk-thru tour with the museum director on a recent Friday afternoon at 12:30. These occur regularly, I think, and greatly enhanced the experience of this small museum. She took us into the lab where students create neon works and showed us the...More

2 Star Fair Rating, not because of the great display of neon, but to call this one room display of neon a Museum is misleading. It should be "Nice small display of Neon". $10 admission and won't take longer than 30 minutes even if you...More

Our Car Club visited M.O.N.A. on a Saturday afternoon. Wonderful display of vintage, neon signs, and interesting little video to watch in a back room. Just wish there were more signs, but space is limited. They do change out the exhibit every so often, so...More

The exhibit changes every several months. We viewed classic neon signs, mostly from the L.A. area. A unique museum which is basically one large room. We liked it. I believe classes are also given at this location.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
