Culver City Attractions in Los Angeles

Because of its location between downtown Los Angeles and the ocean, Culver City has always been something of a destination. These days Culver City's star is definitely rising, especially now that the Expo Line will soon provide subway access to the area.

Culver City has been a well-know location in the movie-making world for much of the past century. Sony Pictures Studio is located here and offers a studio tour. The smaller Culver Studios remains a working studio; no tour here but the historic facade is a prominent feature of the pedestrian dining area in downtown Culver City (between W. Washington Blvd and Culver Blvd 90232).

In terms of cultural landmarks, some offbeat museums-spaces located here include the Museum for Jurassic Technology (a cabinet of curiosities-style collection) and Center for Land Use Interpretation (unique educational displays exploring man-made geographies).

In the last 10 years , Culver City has exploded onto the art gallery scene. Near the Angles Gallery on La Cienaga can be found other premiere galleries like Blum and Poe, Honor Fraser, Taylor de Cordoba, Cherry & Martin, David Kordansky Gallery, Susanne Veilmetter, Peres Projects, Norma Desmond Productions, and LAXART (see this gallery guide for links to these galleries).

More prosaic shopping opportunities near downtown Culver City include the cool kitchen supply/gourmet food store Surfas and the neat Helms Furniture district: an Art Deco bakery turned into stores and restaurants.
