This is the place to go to see some very good art. There are several world-class photography galleries. You will also see an interesting variety of paintings, drawings, prints and new art. If you want to see every gallery, expect to spend two hours or more. I visit every time I am in Santa Monica.

Excellent small galleries. Fun experience. Since all very close-- if do not like one exhibit, steps to next. Easy free parking and yes-- the gift shop( actually also A gallery) --had special and reasonably priced items.

Like browsing art galleries, this is the place. And it's even a great spot for picking up unique little gifts within some of the galleries. Check their website for special events and perhaps you will catch an opening weekend.

If you're into art, this place is a must see & do. The new Metro train stops right at this place. Around forty-five galleries all open to the public.

Galleries everywhere! Lunch is doable but better restaurants nearby driving. There's a really cute & unique gift shop there too.

I love Bergamot station and am really sad to hear big business may be taking over their space pushing out all the art galleries. who needs another big hotel and offices. go see Bergamot station before it is gone....it's a real gem.

Quite a few exceptional galleries. I particularly enjoyed amazing Marilyn Monroe photos in one and a most impressive exhibit of photos by Brazilian Photographer Sebastiao Salgado. There is much more and certainly worth a visit.

We went to see the Salgado photography and it was amazing... we then spent a bit of time heading to nearby galleries and saw interesting works, but the Salgado exhibit was spectacular. It closes sometime in April. If you have the opportunity, it is worth a trip to Santa Monica.

We always like going to an art opening at any of the many galleries at the Bergamont Station repurposed site right next to the old railhead. The rail right of way has nicely been taken over by the Metrorail & will be one of the 6-7 stops in Santa Monica. Parking is there, but difficult to find at first -... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
