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.

You have to make reservation forbthis tour but it is complementary. If you want to know how the famous and rich people live on L.A, you have to visit this beautiful house which has been kept as its masters were to come and stay immmediately. In addition you have a wonderful collection of modern art, from Botero statues in the... More

The best attraction to visit in Beverly Hills, and it's a free guided tour, in this privately owned superb villa! You can chose either the morning or the afternoon tour, the tour is for a small group of people and it takes you through the house, the way it has been left when they used to leave there. Because of... More
