So easy to enjoy- fantastic galleries. Not overwhelming It is right near the free way so v easy to access and it is NOT an all day long event but rather a really special way to spend time enjoying wonderful art. I go alone- special time

Love this spot. It is an authentic artists colony. Lots of unique galleries all in one spot. They are all very different. Love to spend day going to each one. And the Santa Monica Museum of Art is here too. Plenty of parking and a little cafe on site. Check hours before coming.

We stopped into this gem on our way to Santa Monica. We found the artists open and welcoming, the art amazing and varied in theme and medium, and the treasures vast. If we were not flying home, we would have purchased MUCH more! Definitely a stop for any art enthusiast, and there is even a cafe with adult beverages to... More

Almost every saturday there are openings, and by gallery openings we know what it means; ffree food and wine. How come not more people know about this? what a great place for... More

When I'm in NY I love walking in Chelsea going from art gallery to art gallery. There is nothing like it in the world. The closest you can get to that experience in southern California is Bergamot Station. There are many good galleries, a nice little cafe, and a few interesting stores. My favorite of the stores is the one... More

Bergamot Station Arts Center is Santa Monica's art destination. Home to the Santa Monica Museum of Art + nearly 30 art galleries, this place is a great gem. Currently it's a bit remote to get to (access via Michigan Avenue, off of Cloverfield Blvd/ 26th St). The Expo Light Rail Station will have a stop @ Bergamot Station opening in... More

If you on foot, as we did, the entrance is 29 paces from Olympic Way, don't walk all the way round. Eclectic mixture of welcoming art galleries, friendly museum and superb café. The City Hall should do more to advertise it.

12.15.2013 Wow! It seemed like all of santa Monica and then some were there for the pre-Xmas open house. The parking lot was full! People were milling about especially at the Gift shop. They have one-of-a-kind whimsical, quirky gifts, some of them even amusing - pricey though. But people are buying - encouraging sign that the economy is recovering? We... More
