    The museum's official Sketching Gallery encourages guests to literally draw inspiration from traditional art pieces. Guests can work with an easel or at a shared table, and it's complimentary.

    Extremely beautiful center, free for the public but parking costs $15. Bring a camera and food because what they sell is a bit overpriced and only mediocre!

    산타모니카 정상에 위치해서 LA의 풍광을 제대로 즐길 수 있는 곳이지요. 빼어난 소장 콜렉션뿐만 아니라 건축가 Richard Meier의 작품인 미술관 건물 자체도 좋은 감상거리입니다. 넉넉한 여유 시간을 챙겨 방문하세요. 제대로 즐기려면 시간 많이 걸립니다.
