Update, June 15, 2021: To ensure safety of all visitors, all visitors are required to wear masks.
We want to help you make the most of your visit. We encourage you to call Visitor Experience at 310-443-7020 during museum hours for assistance.
Coat and Bag Check
The Hammer requires visitors to check items larger than 12” x 6” x 12” (including purses, bags, and backpacks) at the welcome desk. The Hammer may refuse to accept other items at its discretion and is not responsible for items held at coat check. Please remember to retrieve any checked items before you leave the museum.
Food and Drink
Our restaurant is currently closed. Sign up for the Hammer’s email list for exciting updates about our restaurant in the coming months.
Food and drink may not be carried into the galleries or the Billy Wilder Theater.
For the safety of the art, pens and markers are not permitted within the galleries. Pencils are available at the welcome desk.
As a courtesy to other museumgoers, cell phone conversations should be conducted outside of the galleries.
Attending a Public Program
During the coronavirus pandemic, all of the Hammer’s public programs are held online.
Trained service animals are welcome in all spaces throughout the museum. We welcome other supervised and leashed domesticated animals only in the museum’s courtyard.
