Find out all about this misunderstood neighborhood with a visit to this vibrant little museum.  One photo display depicts the days when jazz greats frequented the area and includes the recording studio history of the 1960s, while another photo display tells the LGBTQ history that includes the 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Riot.  A gallery in the front lobby, which changes regularly, recently displayed “The Shoots” exhibition featuring images from the filming in this area of the movie “Life is Fare.”  Time your visit so you can take a daytime historical walking tour, which is only $5 more after the admission fee, or a Night Moves tour that includes museum admission and a live jazz show at the Black Cat.
