Selective Harassment by Security against African-Amer. males

I wish I can say I had a positive experience at this museum, BUT I DIDN’T. The exhibits were fine enough; I love French Impressionist Art so I enjoyed the Hammer Collection. HOWEVER, the security obviously employed a selective process of monitoring people based on race, specifically, selective against black male patrons. During our visit, the Security Manager, cut across the room, 15 feet away, to tell my husba... view more

Noteworthy

Nestled in the quaint section of Westwood, Los Angeles near the UCLA campus is this contempory museum the ""Hammer"". I enjoyed my experience here. I believe there was four different display areas with various art mediums. Rotating selections of paintings, architectural models, sculptures and video at the time that I visited. I was disappointed a bit in the lack of energy surrounding the museum, too little peopl... view more

Header: wonderful both inside and outside

This smaller, less known museum holds a marvelous permanent collection and over the years had held some of the more interesting exhibitions I ever saw. I love the architecture of the building, and the lovely courtyard. Unlike most museum shops that offer very pretty but very pricy pretty things, the Hammer?s store has an impressively comprehensive collection of books.

Great small museum in the heart of Westwood

I love the Hammer for its size, and because it's always free for UCLA students (it's free for everyone on Thursdays). I got hooked after their Societe Anonyme exhibition and have been going back ever since whenever I need a quick culture fix. The permanent collection houses some surprisingly impressive pieces, and the smaller size of the museum makes it a pleasantly manageable activity. There's always a great install... view more

great for an outing in Westwood

Being a UCLA student, I wish I took more advantage of this museum (especially since we have free admission). I've only been there twice, once recently for the Hammer Contemporary Collection. Both times I visited, the exhibits were collections of contemporary pieces. I always check their website and their schedule, because they have interesting guest lectures (Hammer Conversations) with renown speakers...

Great location, good exhibits, lectures

The Hammer is great for UCLA students. Not the best museum in LA, but I've seen a few interesting lectures and some really great installation pieces here.

Great museum!

Second to the Getty, this is my favorite L.A. museum, primarily because it's free for students. There are often great galleries, lectures (I saw Oliver Stone awhile back) and other events in the quaint courtyard. The permanent collection is impressive too. My suggestion: start your morning out here and then drift a few miles west to the Getty.

No hassles

I love visiting the UCLA Hammer Museum. It's doesn't have any of the long lines and parking hassle that sometimes happens at other LA museums. Instead, this place has world renowned art by top artists. The lecture and film series offer thought provoking topics that are again at low cost. The last time I went to the museum I had lunch in Westwood afterwards making for a perfect outing.

Great Exhibits

Who woulda thought? A modern museum with innovative exhibits in the middle of Westwood. A great cultural fix for Westsiders. Though the permanent collection is nothing great, the curators pull together great exhibits of emerging artists.
