The Los Angeles County Art Museum is a location and landmark in L.A. Noire. It is located on the corner of Hoover and 8th. in Los Angeles.

In-Game Description

This site hosted racing and gambling until 1909, when concerned citizens had it recreated as a 'cultural center'. The museum kept fine art, while the rose garden hid wonders such as a sphere-within-a-sphere celestial model, or 'armillary sphere'.

Events of L.A. Noire

Rusty Galloway and Cole Phelps are directed here after reading a poem written by a mass murder suspect, and must find the next note by navigating through the hedge maze and looking around the sphere during the Homicide case The Quarter Moon Murders.

  • In the Remastered Editions of the game you are not able to use the Photo Mode around the hedge maze
