The Washington Times put the California African-American Museum in Exposition Park at the top of the list.
The museum opened during the 1984 Olympic Games and has undergone a major remodeling. It has 19th-century landscapes, modern paintings from the Harlem Renaissance and memorabilia from the estate of Tom Bradley, the only black mayor of Los Angeles. National museum director Lonnie Bunch, who helped to establish the museum, told the paper that the museum tells "important stories about the West
and the promise of American life."
