  • A very unique museum focusing on Cold War history with revolving exhibitions. Small so you wouldn't need to spend a lot of time here.

  • Don't forget about their outdoor exhibits! I really enjoyed the Wende Museum for the interesting exhibits about how the Cold War was framed in Soviet Russia. There was also a cool section in the back of the museum about Jews in Russia. And lastly, the outdoor exhibit had more items about Jewish life in Russia. It's a beautiful museum to visit in Culver City. And it's free! They also change out the exhibits regularly. There is also free parking at the museum and next to the park.
  • We went to the opening reception of the exhibition “China: (De)constructing Ideology: The Cultural Revolution and Beyond”. It was our first time at this museum and we were pleasantly surprised by it. The exhibit was interesting, informative and even interactive (there was a spot where you could write postcards with their stamps and typewriter). They also had additional exhibits (which could include a little bit more info on specific items displayed and not just about the overall window theme. Something to consider: training the staff a little more on the exhibits. While walking around with two guests, one of the staff was acting as a guide but some of the information they provided was wrong- pretty strange at such a small and specific establishment.
