Why locals recommend it
Outside of the entrance to the museum is an installation by Chris Burden called Urban Light. About 200 streetlights are distributed to create a grid-like effect with the museum’s facade and some palm trees in the background. It’s often quite busy, but it’s definitely large enough to get a shot of yourself inside the installation. Have a friend lie on the ground inside the installation, point the camera up, and snap a few shots to get the best photo.

A quick walk to this amazing museum that's just next door to the famed La Brea Tar Pits. During the summer months there's FREE friday night Jazz. Grab a bottle of wine, some snacks and a blanket and enjoy some LIVE music.

“Just two blocks from Hollywood Boulevard, Runyon Canyon Park is an often overlooked urban park that offers some great views. Atop the canyon, you can glimpse views of the San Fernando Valley and the Pacific Ocean, as well as the Hollywood Sign and Giffith Observatory.
