Contemporary art lovers, The Weismans, filled every inch of their beautiful Beverly Hills home with art. The pieces in the home are museum worthy and they wanted the public to enjoy them. After leaving the home, it was left intact for others to enjoy. I am not a great fan of contemporary art, yet I found the home very enjoyable.... More

This is a docent led display in a large house. The art is very modern a some of it by very famous i.e. Lichtenstein, Picasso a lot of less well known. The docent was very good she knew all the artists names, work names and a story about them and yet she kept it moving so I was never bored.... More

I am so excited that we discovered the Weisman Art Foundation. The collection of art is amazing... so many works throughout the house & grounds!

What a gem located in Holmby Hills- a neighborhood of Beverly Hills. This contemporary art collection is vast and contains all the greats of the 20th century. The docents are terrific and can tailor the tours to the audience's art knowledge or lack of. You will get a history of the home, the collection and the collectors. Tours are an... More

One couple's collection of modern and contemporary art in what was their private home. In addition to a chance to see pieces by several big names in art, you can also enjoy the Weismans' sense of humor which is abundantly clear. The house is also great. Our docent was a really wonderful man and his sense of humor added to... More

Los Angeles is full of amazing art and museums, and even after literally 50 years of visiting --both Getty museums, the Hammer, LACMA, I had never ever heard of this museum. If you want contemporary art, you'd love the Broad, but if your tastes run modern but a little more conservative, (Botero, Warhol, Brancusi) the Weisman Foundation will blow your... More

This is special. You have a fabulous house and modern art collection. You have to make reservations. We opted for the 2 PM tour. You have to arrive at 1:55 PM. The guide will open the gates and you park on the circular driveway. The driveway can accommodate about 6 cars. There were only 8 people on our tour. The... More

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,...
