An unbelievable collection of 20th and 21st century art in a remarkable setting in Beverly Hills. Make the effort and you won't regret it.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We enjoy modern and contemporary art (though our knowledge of art is basic at best) and this house had a great mix of beautiful art. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

I would definitely return if I came back to LA.

The virtually universal 5 star rating by reviewers here tells you something. This private art collection that Frederick Weisman and his two wives put together represents an unbelievable view of the 20th century from the very first decade to the last (and into the 21st century). I believe there are something in the neighborhood of 500 works of art throughout this large, gorgeous LA estate. Reservations are essential and you can only visit on a tour. Our docent, Paula, was simply astonishingly familiar with each and every single work in the house (you do get to see everything) as well as about modern art in general. She was a very important part of the pleasure of our visit. We took some LA friends with us who had never even heard of the Weisman Foundation (we're from the Bay Area). This is right up there as a must see with LACMA, MOCA, the Getty, the Norton Simon (Weisman's brother-in-law). I can't stress enough how very important this collection is.

First learned about Frederick Weisman when we visited the Frank Gehry-designed Weisman Art Museum on the campus of the University of Minnesota. We toured the Holmsley Hills Weisman home on February 3, during a visit to Los Angeles. If you are a lover of modern art, this home should be tops on your list. We had to apply in advance to the Frederick Weisman Art Foundation, and we gave them three dates. They assigned us a date and time. Our tour was scheduled for 10:30 am, and we were instructed to arrive no earlier than 10:25 am. You can't walk in - you need to drive onto the property, park in a specific location, and leave everything in your car - including your purse and cellphone.

Once you get in, you'll be treated to a feast of great modern art - paintings, sculpture, furniture, rugs - all placed in rooms by Mr. Weisman and his wife and remaining as they were when the Weismans lived and entertained there. Art in displayed in the bathrooms, on ceilings, on floors - everywhere you look you will see masterpieces by the most famous modern artists in the world: Picasso, Cezanne, Pollack, Lichtenstein, Segal, Moore, Stella, Warhol, Rothko...too many to list. We had a delightful docent-led tour, and bought the book (cash or check only) to savor what we witnessed. It was a very special experience.

As an art lover, I have visited hundreds of museums. This made me think about art and how it is displayed in a way I've never thought before. The quality of the collection is stunning. I can't wait to visit again. And it is free.
