The Broad Museum in itself is a modern work of art! From its veil-and-vault elements of design on the exterior to the immersive installation of postwar and contemporary artwork on the interior; it's no wonder that Downtown LA was bestowed such an artistic gift! With over 2,000 works of art that pay homage to more than 200 artists, the rotating collections seen here are truly a rarity. Peruse eye catching displays by influential contemporary artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michael Basquiat. Let the art take you away with both past and present artists on display. Feel like you're suspended in the air in Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Rooms exhibit. You've got 60 seconds, so snap it up and make them count!

Family art experience
Art museum showcasing the Broad family collection. You have to make ticket reservations online in advance; note that the general admission ticket is separate from the infinity room tickets, so you need to make sure you select both things when reserving tickets. The infinity room tickets go fast, so you need to make them at least a month in advance. There’s a parking lot but it’s $17 for three hours; you can try your luck at city lot instead for $9/$10. Tickets are free but they do have special exhibitions which are paid-admission. Masks were encouraged but not required when we went. No food or beverages allowed. Backpacks need to be worn in front of your body. Some of the art was not kid-friendly, and there are warning signs indicating such. There are restrooms on the second level. You take the escalator up to the third floor and work your way around. You can get a peek at storage while taking the stairs down to the second/first level. Overall, it’s a really fun way to spend a couple of hours to a full day looking at an eclectic mix of art.
Parking is easy and $17 all day on the weekends. You will need to request your tickets online. Masks are required and vaccinations cards are also checked. The museum architecture is really cool. If you do not like art don’t waste your time going here. The restrooms are nice and clean. Would not recommend taking young children here.
We booked tickets the morning of. They are free reservation tickets but I recommend getting them in advance because I believe they do "sell out". Firstly, the architecture of this building is incredible. The building itself is a work of art and was mind blowing just walking through the entrance. The art pieces are fascinating as well and so entertaining to look at and gain some inspiration from. It was not too crowded and was pretty easy to check everything out quickly. The exhibit is not huge and can most likely be looked through in about an hour. I highly recommend checking out The Broad as it is in a great spot of DTLA and has some iconic pieces.
This museum is awesome. It is easy to find parking and they have great signage. The outside of the building as a textured veil and inside has rounded edges that look organic. The staff was friendly and efficient. My only complaint is that the gift shop prices are double other museums in the area. But it is hard to complain about a free museum. We went in a weekend and it was busy but everything moved smoothly.
