Lunch trip recommendation: LADWP museum

Have you ever wondered how Los Angeles gets its water? Learn all about it at the LADWP museum in the John Ferraro Building. The tiny museum has some interesting displays and is the perfect size to explore during lunch time. This year LADWP is also celebrating the L.A. Aqueduct’s centennial, so it’s a great time to brush up on William Mulholland lore.

To get to the museum, take the Red/Purple Line to Civic Center Station and walk northwest through Grand Park, or take Metro Bus 60 to Hope/Temple. The John Ferraro Building is located behind the Music Center and it’s hard to miss – it’s surrounded by water. The LADWP museum is open during business hours and is free to visit, just sign in with security.

As for lunch, grab something tasty from the Farmer’s Market at Grand Park (if you happen to go on a Tuesday that is), check out Tutti Frutti or First & Hope American Bistro just a half block southwest, or brown bag it and enjoy lunch on one of the many benches outside the John Ferraro Building.

    • Hi Dana,

      Great tip! I had no idea there was a cafeteria there, I’ll have to check it out.
