The Broad, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great place to check out art for free! It's usually fully booked for advance tickets a month or more out, though (you can get general admission tickets for free online). But if you're willing to wait in line in the morning before the museum opens, or are able to visit on a weekday when they are less busy, it's definitely worth it. I'm here today to get standby tickets to the special exhibit ($30 per adult), and I had to arrive 2.5 hours prior to opening to wait in line - even then all the morning tickets were sold out by the time I could purchase a ticket. Still worth it to me!

  • Waited in line to see if we could get in free and we did! I would pay to enter. State of the art facility with a visible rotating collection. They have windows that allow you to peer into storage and see other works of art before they are put on display. Super cool.

  • Such a great museum displaying very cool modern artwork from the likes of Jeff Kooney, Barbara Kruger, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol and more. Book the free tickets in advance online to save time on the queue and download the free app 'The Broad' for a guided tour explaining some of the work displayed as well as the architecture of the building itself. Really enjoyed and fully recommend everyone to visit. What was great, was that I did not leave with a heavy feeling as I often do when visiting a modern art museum.

  • Really cool place. Hard to get reserve tickets but you can line up and wait. I waited in a long line for over an hour. My friend arrived 1.5 hrs before opening and was third in line. So either way you'll wait over an hour. The infinity room is amazing but you have only 45 seconds to be in there.

  • Vary cool modern museum with a great variety of pieces. As prior posts said the infinity room is truly amazing but ridiculous to get in and they just scurry you out. Overall the museum itself was excellent, just plan accordingly if you are interested in the infinity room.
