Two big museums in L.A for art fans!

When I went to Los Angeles two years ago, I visited two museums. Before I visited L.A, I didn't know there were big art museums on the west coast. I had thought it's famous for only beaches and Hollywood, or as a relaxing place.
First, I went to The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). There were many contemporary arts I was so interested in. I could see not only American, but multinational artists' work there. And if we want, we can take pictures without flash. It's a big difference from museums in Japan.
Next, I visited The J. Paul Getty Museum. It was a huge museum!! And it was a little far from downtown, so I had to get on a bus. I remember it took 30 minutes or so. I could see old arts in several buildings for free.
It was good experience for me that I could see wonderful pictures in a foreign country. I think L.A is an exciting city not only for marine sports and movie fans, but also for art fans!
