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

Art auctions, video productions, design consulting, sculpture, photographs, paintings, jewelry, fine papers and flowers are some of the offerings of this complex of buildings that contain studios and galleries galore. Our visit yielded a display of photos of Audrey Hepburn and Frank Sinatra; wood cuttings; decorative handmade papers from such countries as Mexico, Japan and Indonesia; and hand crafted jewelry,...

Browse the galleries . Take a coffee at the cafe and enjoy the various temporary displays. Our visit coincided with photo display of Marilyn Monroe..a true red head with sun damage +++

When you're sick of the shopping on Third St. Promenade, get in your car and drive a couple miles to Bergamot Station. It's off the beaten track in an industrial looking area. Go on in the gate and park anywhere. All the buildings are full of local art exhibitions. Have a blast and buy something you love.

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.
