The automotive museum across the street is worth a look. L.A.'s museums are really not that great compared with New York though they seem to think that the new Getty had suddenly brought the rest of them to a higher level. There was even a recent article in the New York Times praising the LA museums. I, however, stick to the old joke, what's the difference between yoghurt and L.A.? Yoghurt has an active culture.
Let's face it, people come here for the sun and the plastic surgery. But, if you really want to see some good art, there's a good collection of galleries by the corner of Cloverfield and Olympic in Santa Monica.

The Conservatory is located in Culver City, on Washington Blvd. between Jasmine and Clarington, across from Sony Picture Studios (used to be MGM)
Bay Shore Bowl on Pico near 4th St. is a little run down. The lanes almost always break down, especially with a 14 lb. or heavier ball. The arcade is lacking, but they do have air hockey which rocks almost as much as Medieval Madness.
