Industrialist Armand Hammer founded this museum in 1990, primarily to house his own collection, and it opened just three weeks before he died. Now, the free, UCLA partner institution stages fascinating shows of modern art, photography and design, often with an epmhasis on local artists. The shows are supplemented by the Hammer’s public events calendar (arguably one of the best in the city), chock full of free lectures, concerts and screenings.

The Hammer consistently stages some of the most engaging art exhibitions in the city. Their "Leap Before You Look" show focusing on the art coming out of Black Mountain College was among the most exciting and interesting shows of 2016. Hammer also regularly hosts cool music and dance events in their courtyard space. And, of course, it's all free, which is amazing. The locale is a bit out of the way for non-students, but it's worth the trek.
It's a small art museum that will take you 30 mins to an hour to walk through. Sometimes they'll showcase Monet and Van Gogh. Admission is free! Try out the swirl chairs in the courtyard!
