My wife and I took the tour last week; tour group is small and you need advance reservations. Took about 2 - 21/2 hours and included the house, gardens and Annex. Delightful docent and wonderful modern art. It was very enjoyable hearing about the house, the art, the owner, the Weisman family (his two wives are also collectors) and his... More

This home, in Bel Air, is owned by the estate of one of the biggest owner of modern art in Los Angeles. It is curated by his last wife but most of the art was purchased with his first wife, Marsha, whose family was consumed with the art scene in Los Angeles during the 60's, 70's and beyond. It should... More

If you are in LA, definitely see the LACMA, the Norton Simon, and both Getty Museums. But add this house tour to your list. This is the collector's own home and it is full of interesting art, especially a lot of life-like sculptures. I cannot recall a home tour this good since the Barnes Foundation. It is free but requires... More

This truly is one of the great secret glories of LA. It is a stunning collection of contemporary art shown in the house where the collector lived which gives a glimpse of a life as well as of the great art. Although there are some jarring notes -- I am not sure I want to bathe in a tub under... More

We found this place on Internet and good reviews, so we thought of give it a try. Glad to get a spot on a tour. It is really a special experience. Hard to believe someone actually lived here.

The tour of this magnificent art gallery was such a tremendous surprise. We had driven past and looked at some of the sculptures previously, so when we were arrived for the tour we were overjoyed. Once inside and bearing witness to such a marvellous selection of artwork, we knew we were in for more surprises. If you are going to... More

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
