    The Hammer is associated with ULCA but it is far more. There is a permanent collection gallery with Art works collected by the family who started the gallery. Wow. A great array of pictures - Is there...  more »

    Hammer Museum was established in November 1990 founded by Dr. Armand Hammer. It partnered with UCLA in 1994 and expanded in time. The museum has exhibitions, collections, programs including kids outdoor art moves or art and nature. There is a nice garden, a cafe and an art store in place. The Hammer Museum is committed to free admission and free public programs as they believe in the promise that art and ideas illuminate our lives and build a more just world.

    It's free. The permanent collection is quite good and the temporary exhibits are relevant to the sociopolitical climate. The outdoor space is very well organized, dynamic, and communal. The gift shop/book store is well stocked with fascinating items. The children's section is fantastic. The upstairs women's restroom is always hot and the stalls are poorly built.

    Fantastic museum with provoking exhibitions, interactive installations, a well-curated gift shop, and free admission. (Though if you park in the garage you'll have to pay for parking.) Bonus: the restaurant there is brilliant for brunch (tasty cuisine, usually no wait).

    I really like The Hammer. They keep their exhibits interesting, and very modern, and rotate quickly enough that there's always something new. It's also not a huge sprawl, so you can see the whole thing in a few hours.

    Great little oasis. I love their little book store. It has so many books for the artistic minded person. The Ping Pong tables for people to play are really great addition to an art museum. There weren't as many exhibits as I thought, but considering that this museum is free, that's not that big a deal.

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.
