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.
