Create an itinerary including Hammer Museum
Whether you're interested in historically over-looked or emerging visual artists, Hammer Museum remains the most relevant cultural institution in town where you can see their works. Industrialist Armand Hammer founded the museum in 1990 to house his personal art collection that included works by acclaimed European and American artists dating from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. Since then, the museum became known as the hippest art gallery in town with a long list of free film screenings, performances, lectures, panel discussions, and other public programs.

  • A very beautiful (inside) building with many a exhibitions and very good art (classical and contemporary art, perfect combination; congrats to the curators). I really enjoy my time here. Andrea Bowers exhibition is amazing and I loved to see the Rembrandts and the Sargent at The Armand Hammer Collection exhibition.
  • I Visited the Hammer Museum today for Picasso Cut Papers exhibition and honestly I was so impressed! It was the last day of this collection so it was a little busy, (which I didn’t mind) The art pieces were great, staff were super nice and also beautiful place to hang out and relax! The admission was free which is really nice
