We were told to visit by a friend who is also a docent at LACMA. Glad we took her suggestion and were able to get a spot on a tour. It is really a special experience. Hard to believe someone actually lived here. The docents are very knowledgeable. If you enjoy art this is a must visit in Los Angeles.

Who knew? Right under your nose is a spectacular collection of modern art, all free to see. The Weisman home has been converted to a museum on a reservation only basis. Tour groups are small, maybe 15 people max, 2 tours a day, and only 5 days a week. Imagine being led by a docent through a collection of Picassos,... More

What a wonderful collection of contemporary art. It was a treat to see it in this particular setting: the home of the private collector. Our docent was knowledgeable and the tour well-paced. She packed a lot into an hour and a half. I am recommending to all my museum friends who visit the LA area.

Can't say enough about our visit, The docent, Dick Heiser, was knowledgeable, informative, personable and just pain nice. The art was breathtaking. It was so varied, and to tour with the art within the house setting was an unbelievable experience. I cannot recommend the tour enough for lovers of 20th century+ art. Reserve your space now. Thank you, Mrs. Heisman,... More

Such an amazing collection of modern art! When else do you get the chance to have a docent led tour of a private collection in Beverly Hills? Totally worth the time!

An unbelievable collection of 20th and 21st century art in a remarkable setting in Beverly Hills. Make the effort and you won't regret it.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We enjoy modern and contemporary art (though our knowledge of art is basic at best) and this house had a great mix of beautiful art. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely return if I came back to LA.

The virtually universal 5 star rating by reviewers here tells you something. This private art collection that Frederick Weisman and his two wives put together represents an unbelievable view of the 20th century from the very first decade to the last (and into the 21st century). I believe there are something in the neighborhood of 500 works of art throughout... More

First learned about Frederick Weisman when we visited the Frank Gehry-designed Weisman Art Museum on the campus of the University of Minnesota. We toured the Holmsley Hills Weisman home on February 3, during a visit to Los Angeles. If you are a lover of modern art, this home should be tops on your list. We had to apply in advance... More

As an art lover, I have visited hundreds of museums. This made me think about art and how it is displayed in a way I've never thought before. The quality of the collection is stunning. I can't wait to visit again. And it is free.
