Location

Southwest Museum station is an at-grade light rail station on the L Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located near the intersection of Marmion Way at Museum Drive in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles.[1] The station opened on July 26, 2003, as part of the original Gold Line, then known as the "Pasadena Metro Blue Line" project.

The station is named after the nearby historic Southwest Museum which is located a short walk up from the station on Museum Drive and also features an enhanced architectural design, called Highland Park Gateway, created by artists Teddy Sandoval and Paul Polubinskas.

This station and all the other original and Foothill Extension stations will be part of the A Line upon completion of the Regional Connector project in 2022.
