Not worth going out of your way to see it Sep 29, 2012
Located in the Koreatown area of LA, the Korean Cultural Center is a museum that has a collection that showcases Korean culture.

Being of Korean descent, and a trip to Korea coming up, I had to check this place out. The first floor has a quick overview of Korean history, and displays of items relating to Korean culture. Also, there is a replica of a traditional Korean home. On the 2nd floor, is a display of Korean ceramics.

The museum is sparse, which can be seen very quickly. I assumed it would be a museum on Korean history, as well as the history of Koreatown. Well, it had a little bit of the first one, but none of the second one. Not extensive enough!

Overall, not worth going out of your way to see it, being pretty far from everything else. And the exhibitions are small and disappointing. I just feel it could be so much more, which is a shame.
