This smallish museum is tucked in the middle of the Wells Fargo building, and worth looking for. It is well set up, and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. It's worth looking for, and worth the time to visit.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
