  • Westwood has been a frequent business destination in past years, and I am so glad that many years ago I discovered the Fowler Museum on the UCLA campus, with its emphasis on global arts and culture. T...  more »
  • I booked a group guided tour for children ages 8-9. The museum exhibit displayed many ornate masks, decorations, and statues. The tour guide was very informative. The hands-on craft was entertaining. ...  more »
  • A terrific place for solitude and walks into the stuffy la! Came across quite by accident, but spent three hours there, so mentally and beautiful. Greenery, a fountain outside. You can take the book, sit outside, recharge the battery.

  • Inexpensive and large with lots of opportunity to step back outside and chill if you're getting tired of looking at rectangles on walls for hours. Some nice German Expressionist and symbolist holdings I wasn't expecting.
  • You can easily spend an hour here enjoying the collection or one of the evening events they have.
  • Good on-campus museum with small private selection. The place is tiny, so variety is lacking and most of the art is not particularly interesting or historically significant. Still, entrance is free and the place is well-curated. It's worth a visit but I wouldn't go out of my way to check this place out. There are much better museums to visit, but it's worth coming here if you happen to find yourself on the UCLA campus one day.
  • As a student, I never visited The Fowler, I didn’t even know its full function. I took it for granted like I am assuming many students, employees and campus visitors are doing this very second. The Fowler, first and foremost, is completely free. They do have a donation box for support, but you can certainly come in to explore any exhibit. The exhibits are always changing! A diverse collection of sculptures, painting, and other art pieces are the allure of the Fowler. The museum provides an exchange of cultures you may not be able to find at other museums. In my visit I was able to explore the Nkame exhibit featuring the Cuban printmaker Belkis Ayón whose work displayed Afro-Cuban myths and visual iconography. It was truly unique in that all her work was presented with subtle tones; white, black and grey. One of my favorite exhibits was the Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives. The multi-cultural objects were so detailed and exquisite that you couldn’t help but to admire its beauty. It was a treat in trying to guess where certain object where from, what country, what time period. Overall great place for exposure to different cultures and diverse forms of artistry.
  • Greate lectures and a good conference room.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
