Very artistic and innovative design of the buildings. 3 different buildings of different color. Red, Blue and Grren. Also a small very attractive satellite MOCA gallery. Lot of good restaurants close by.

Interesting to visit, but lots of dealers have left and you will find many empty spaces. Nice views from the escalator.

Modern colors and oddly shaped buildings that smack you in the face while driving by. I must stop in next time as we are designing a new home.

The red building auto forecourt has a stunning modern light sculpture hanging in the center. Hidden from view unless you walk (or drive to let someone off) into the building entrance. Worth seeing. Well-done. A surprise indeed.

The outside of the building is stunning in shape, texture and colour. Inside the surfaces gleam. We only saw a handful of other visitors as we stolled around the various displays. After the tackiness of Hollywood Blvd which had been our last point of call,...More

For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for

neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s
up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and
aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great

I can't say if the audio tour is worth it for Disney Hall. I've never done it, but I'm extremely familiar with the building since I live nearby. I think it is really a matter of personal preference. I've found Disney Hall is great for exploring. If there's not a performance going on, you can go pretty much everywhere. I'd also point out, there is a park on the roof. You can get there from a staircase on Grand Avenue. There is also an elevator which is well hidden on the First Street side. ...More

Hi...we'll be visiting Los Angeles next week and would love to just sightsee at the Pacific Design Center. I can find hours on the Museum but are the showrooms available to the public either Friday or Monday? Thanks for your help!

Yes it's open to the public. Showrooms have store hours, each is individually owned, most close at 6PM.
