Group tours at the Hammer Museum are led by UCLA student educators. Groups may choose between viewing special exhibitions, the Armand Hammer Collection, and the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden. Tours are conducted during Museum hours and last approximately 45 minutes. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
The Hammer Museum offers three types of tours to accommodate the specific needs of your group:
60 minutes: Student Educators lead discussion-based tours through one exhibition. Each tour last 45-60 minutes and is tailored appropriately based on the group’s type and age.
20/20: A less formal tour, the 20/20 tour begins with a 20-minute gallery talk followed by 20+ minutes of self-guided viewing. Visitors view the art at their own pace, while the Student Educator is on-hand to field questions and discuss works of art with members of the group.
Self-Guided Tours: Reservations are also required for groups of 10 people or more. Please contact the Visitor Services department at least one week prior to your visit at 310-443-7025.
