Galleries & Museums

There’s no better place to immerse yourself in culture than in Downtown’s art scene. An engaging mix of contemporary art, historical architecture, and performing arts await, with spots like The Broad, Hauser & Wirth, and MOCA fostering a forward-thinking and innovative community in the heart of LA.


Bradbury Building & NeueHouse 


Step inside an iconic LA landmark in the oldest commercial building remaining in central LA. Known for its skylit atrium of walkways, staircases, and ornate ironwork, the Bradbury has made appearances in many works of fiction, film, television, and video shoots. Free and open to the public.

Hauser & Wirth 


Hauser & Wirth’s 13 global locations are celebrations of contemporary art and modern moguls — their LA location  weaves together art, culture, and architecture, offering a lineup of community-focused events and programming in a lively space featuring an on-site farm-to-table restaurant, Manuela.

The Broad


Discover evolving exhibitions and an expansive permanent collection at the Downtown Broad, a museum founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, with works centered around contemporary art from the 1950s to the present. Be sure to check out their roster of ongoing community events and programming, including fun and education-rich family-friendly activities for all ages.

Until the opening of the Broad across the street, MOCA was LA’s only museum wholly dedicated to contemporary art. There’s always something great to see at both their Downtown location and at the Geffen Contemporary, housed in a former police car warehouse in Little Tokyo.

The Theater at The Ace Hotel 


Perhaps one of the most significant things to come from the Ace Hotel’s renovation of the historic United Artists Building was the restoration of the original Theatre, built in the 1920s and extravagantly decorated with Gothic design flourishes. The three-story space is one of the city’s most important architectural gems, and under the art direction of the Ace it’s also become a hotspot for some of the coolest cultural activities in LA.

Disney Concert Hall


(temporarily closed due to Covid-19) 

This beautiful, unique Frank Gehry-designed gem is home to the LA Philharmonic, and is perhaps best known for its striking, postmodern look—like silver sails blowing in the wind. It is definitely worth a walk or drive around the exterior, located just a block from the Broad and Grand Park. 

111 S. Grand Ave.

Los Angeles, CA 90012 


Natural History Museum


Since the early 1900’s, LA’s Natural History Museum has been playing host to millions of artifacts from the past five or so billion years – and the collection keeps on growing. Be sure to check out the Dinosaur Hall, home to a 65 million-year-old Triceratops fossil and over 300 more ancient relics.
