Museum of Jurassic Technology is a tongue firmly in cheek exhibit of biological specimens, curiosities, writings and art from the Lower Jurassic (period? region?) ... or maybe it's on the level. You be the judge. The site lets you examine a few exhibits, such as the Cameroon Stink Ant and a horn purportedly removed from the head of a 17th century woman.

Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) provides one of the nation's finest collections of post-1940 art and offers over 20 special exhibits a year.

Paley Center for the Media, The - this museum fills a long open hole in LA's museum landscape. The western sister of a branch in New York, it offers many exhibitions, screenings, listenings, and lectures.

Autry National Center provides one of the world's largest collections devoted to Western History and Art (despite its Hollywood namesake). Not just a cowboy museum ... the collection focuses on eight communities ... African, Asian, Mexican, Mormon, Canadian, European and of course Native American. In addition to Remingtons and Russells, you'll find folk art, artifacts, costumes and props from the Western cinema and a Children's Discovery Gallery.

ArtScene has information on hundreds of art museums and galleries throughout Southern California. You can find out who and what's showing, see sample artworks and view maps.
