The Gold Line is the Los Angeles "Culture Line"

The Metro Gold Line could easily be called the "Culture Line" for greater Los Angeles. There are six fascinating museums within easy walking distance of its stations. Additionally, each station has its own unique works of art, some of which are shown below. 

For most of its length the Metro Gold Line runs above ground giving passengers views of dozens of Los Angeles neighborhoods--from Union Station downtown to eastern Pasadena, from Little Tokyo to East L.A.
