Hammer Museum is not your typical art museum, and that’s a good thing. Hammer Museum understands that art has a unique and rare ability to move individuals to the core, and the collections here cater to this ideology. Located on Westwood Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard, Hammer is easy to access, and with many ever-changing and permanent exhibitions, there’s always something worth seeing.
The Hammer Museum is an integral part of UCLA’s School of Arts, so it excellently caters to the education of its patrons. The museum’s mission “is the recognition that artists play a crucial role in all aspects of human experience,” and this is apparent in the exhibitions and the selection of resident artists. With many opportunities for students, locals and tourists alike, the Hammer Museum is truly a unique experience.
The Hammer Museum is located at the northeast corner of Westwood Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood Village, three blocks east of the 405 freeway’s Wilshire exit. If visiting UCLA, consider staying at the Hilgard House as its close proximity to the school along with ideal amenities will make the commute a cinch. Inside the Hammer Museum there is a quaint sandwich shop, Ammo at the Hammer, to tide you over, but because of the prime location of the museum, there are hundreds of food options in the immediate area to quell even the most ravenous appetite.
Travel to the Hammer Museum in a vehicle that is a work of art in its own right like a 2013 E550 Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The luxurious details will make for a smooth ride to and from the museum.
