Hammer Museum, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review

  • Definitely one of the more unique museums I've encountered. It's completely FREE so go if you have the chance. I came here expecting a traditional museum visit but the exhibits are more modern and change frequently. The recent one I've seen is about radical women which makes for interesting art. There's also a room full of older paintings.

  • Enjoyed a fun evening with the UCLA gamer students as they showed off their creativity both electronic and as board games. Especially enjoyed the erotic adult-only section.

  • A really wonderful and different museum. It's built around a courtyard and has only a small section of more traditional art in the permanent collection. Most is very, very modern. I didn't find the modern stuff to be terribly interesting but it's a great experience and there were a few pieces I really loved. I'm under the impression a lot of it rotates pretty often, too, so when you're going it might be totally different. Either way, it's free, beautiful, calming and different from your average museum.

  • loved it!! I'm from Argentina and I felt so comfortable here. They have a lot of things about gender and skin equality. The explication that you find in the works of art is also in Spanish.

  • Nice museum with friendly staff, a nice gift shop with a good selection and a nice place to grab food. The museum is free to enter and has free WiFi for guests. They also have a nice courtyard where you can meet people with lots of tables and seats. The art is varied. There are paintings in more classical styles and also more contemporary sculpture and mixed media pieces. It took me about a little over an hour to go through everything whilst taking my time, it's not the largest gallery.
