Related Attractions



Hammer Museum is an art museum in the Westwood district of Los Angeles, California. The museum was founded by Armand Hammer, the late CEO of the Occidental Petroleum Corporation, as a venue to exhibit his extensive art collection. The 79,000-square-foot building was built for $60 million and opened to the public in November 1990.

The Hammer contains a small collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. The museum holds over 7500 works by French satirist Honoré Daumier, the largest collection outside of Paris. In recent years, the Hammer has become well known for its collection of contemporary art works on paper. It also has fine paintings by Rembrandt, Titian, and Chardin. The Hammer today manages a complex group of art holdings, including the collections amassed by Armand Hammer, and UCLA's Murphy Sculpture Garden and Grunwald Center, a 45,000-piece graphic arts trove.
