Attending a Public Program


Attending a Public Program


While all of the Hammer's programs are free, many require a ticket. Tickets are available at the Box Office one hour before the program. One ticket per person; first come, first served. Early arrival is recommended. Check individual program pages for more details.

As a benefit for their support, members receive priority ticketing and can choose their seats, subject to availability.

Coat and Bag Check

The Hammer requires visitors to check backpacks, shopping bags, and all large bags at the Welcome Desk, located in the Wilshire Lobby. The Hammer may refuse to accept other items at its discretion and is not responsible for items held at coat check.
