The Hammer is a perfect art museum for teens who are not particularly interested in art, but can appreciate it a little. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon just 1.5 hours before closing. It was the ideal amount of time for us to take in the temporary exhibits of modern artists, as well as a smattering of the permanent collections. The staff was friendly (except the guards, who were at least polite), the art was mostly very interesting, and some of it was downright gorgeous! The best part was the actual Armand Hammer Collection full of Old Masters. A Titian and 2 Moreaus were my favorites! We loved the courtyard, and hope to return to see more some day. We were fortunate to attend free of charge using the "Museums on Us" program sponsored by Bank of America.
