A fascinating insight into how art collectors live and what their priorities are. Mr Weisman was a fan of modern art and with seemingly unlimited funds he and the artistically intelligent second Mrs Weisman, travelled the world collecting pieces from name artists as well as some relatively unknown ones and they filled the house with those works. Our guide was... More

After visiting the Weisman Art Foundation, I have a newfound appreciation for modern art, partly due to its unique setting and different perspective; seeing the art displayed as someone would, to live amongst it and enjoy it, and not just to look at it. A beautiful and fabulous extensive collection, with something for everyone to delight in, and be amazed... More

Viewing famous art in art museums is a wonderful venture..... viewing famous art in a private home is an intimate experience. Frederick Weisman has left a time capsule of his wonderful art collection and life for you to explore. Tours must be prescheduled, and are docent lead, and that's part of the pure joy of exploring his collection. Our docent... More

Each amazing room of this beautiful home holds an awe-inspiring collection of great art. The most familiar names of the past century--it's like walking into a contemporary & modern art book. The grounds have incredible sculptures as well. It was an extraordinary experience & the docent gave a lively, interesting commentary w/ great historical contextual references.

Was here in February for the first time tho' I've been visiting LA for almost 30 years! The place is a greatest hits of American modern art! It takes over 2 hours and I brought a dubious group- my non-art obsesses husband, 15 and 17 year old girls and their 17 year old friend. In the end only the 15... More

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

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! The docent was so knowledgable, but honestly we felt a bit rushed because we had to keep moving through to end our tour on time. I wanted to just stop and really gaze at several... More

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
