    VIBE

    This trolley station-turned-art collective not only houses the Santa Monica Museum of Art, but also the largest grouping of galleries on the West Coast. Works on display range from furniture and sculpture to painting and photography while specialist design shops vend cutting-edge pieces from local and international artists. Though the collections in the museum and the galleries are ever-sophisticated, the complex has a funky boho vibe which is enhanced by the crowds of local creative types who come to browse on weekends.

    GO HERE WITH

    A friend – for browsing and lunch in the stellar onsite cafe.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The combination of the laidback bohemian feel and the sophisticated, well-designed exhibitions makes for a relaxing yet inspiring wander.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The design of the space makes it difficult to navigate. So if you’re looking for a specific gallery, come with patience.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Parking is free and plentiful–there’s a large lot on site.
