The Main Museum

The Main Museum is a new art museum under development in Downtown Los Angeles. The Main is dedicated to engaging the public with the most important ideas of our time through the art of Los Angeles. With a residency program at its center rather than a collection, The Main forefronts artists in its work and supports wide-ranging practices from artists at all stages in their careers.

Throughout all phases of the museum’s development, which includes exhibitions, artist residencies, and public programs, The Main will continue to refine its vision and methods as it learns from the community, artists, experimentation, and Downtown Los Angeles.

The Main is located within the historic Hellman Building which was constructed between 1903 and 1906. The space features high ceilings, original columns and tile-work, and windows looking out to 4th Street, and is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 12 to 7pm when exhibitions are on view. Free admission always.
