The best place we visited in LA was the Frederick R Weisman Art Foundation in Beverly Hills. Although it was a little tricky to make reservations (very cloak and dagger about its location, where to park, secret password, etc.), once we had made the reservations and received confirmation, we were able to park inside the gates of a gorgeous, furnished,...

Incredible experience - you must make reservations in advance, this is a personal art collection housed in a private home and they can only accommodate 10-15 people on a tour. You tour the entire home, furnished as it was when the Weisman's lived there, with their incredible collection of modern art. The walls and flat surfaces are covered in an... More

We toured the house and collection yesterday and throughly enjoyed the docent and the amazing collection. What a gift the Weismann's have made to the community to allow their massive collection to be open to the public. This is a not to be missed art collection.

Very impressive contemporary art collection displayed in mansion setting. Art everywhere including bathrooms and ceilings. Definitely worth making a reservation.

If you love Contemporary Art, do not miss this private collection while in LA. Tours are by reservations only and are limited to small groups of 10-12 guests. Once inside, I felt like I had entered an enchanted land full of wonders and didn't want the tour to end. In our group, a few had taken the tour before even... More

Celebrated art collection in a gorgeous home maintained with its original furnishings. A special treat not to be missed. Have visited many times and delighted to introduce guests to a wonderful experience.

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
