Craft & Folk Art Museum

Museum in West Hollywood & Mid-City

This well-respected, intimate, three-story museum features an eclectic mix of world-renowned and local, up-and-coming artists in the folk and craft art worlds. Exhibits change a few times per year, but the museum's goal is to straddle the lines between the contemporary-art, socio-political movements and craft media you don't always see: fiber arts, metal working, book-binding and more. Exhibits change every few months, so check for closing dates and for family-oriented hands-on workshops, usually held on Sundays.

The gift store is one of the best in town, with hand-crafted gifts, including many by local makers, with an emphasis on jewelry, housewares, textiles and games.
