Hotel Checkout. You will need to check your bags at the hotel front desk until you return later in the afternoon.

Take the Red Line train to the Civic Center Metro station in Downtown LA. Use the First Street exit to get out of the station.

10:00 AM

12:00 PM

Walk west (up the hill) on First Street to Walt Disney Concert Hall, at Grand Avenue. Take a free tour at the Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles (PACLA), such as:

  • Symphonian Tour (10:30 AM; 90 minutes) - a docent-led, guided tour of all four major theatres in the PACLA complex: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Try to arrive by 10:15 so you can get on this tour (if available).
  • Walt Disney Concert Hall self-guided tour - Walk through Disney Hall as you listen to a recorded tour on a hand-held listening device. The self-guided tour covers the building's design and construction, plus the gardens and building structure outside. It takes around 60-90 minutes to complete this tour, if you take pictures and listen to the entire narration.
  • Both tours begin at the Disney Concert Hall main lobby.
  • Tour availability varies daily so check the schedule at PACLA's website (MusicCenter.org) to see which tours are offered during your visit.

After the tour, walk south to the Museum of Contemporary Art at 222 Grand Avenue. It is a red brick building on the other side of the street.
