The area
Address
Neighborhood: Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.

Unique and Amazing
Jun 2021 • Friends
The Broad is unique and amazing. Love the new layout with rooms and spaces dedicated to a single artist. It helps to contrast their popular, well known works with lesser known ones. Staff is warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. Loved this visit even more than my first from a few years ago.

Get advance tickets - Wouldn't want to wait in line
Sep 2019
We're not Modern Art people at all but we actually didn't mind wandering about as there are a few interesting pieces (Ellen Gallagher, 2004 eXelento, Glenn Ligon's 2006 Double America and Jeff Koons pieces) but I can see how it would be mostly boring to families with little ones. The space is nice and we didn't feel crowed or like we were standing with others while taking in the art. I definitely wouldn't line up outside for hours to get in but it's very good for what is was.

My advice is to take an early morning slot - the earliest possible if your aim is to see 'The Infinity Room' because sign up/places fill up immediately - we were in at open (10th or so in line with a ticket reserved in advance - there's a walk in line too) and still had a 30min wait. So you can imagine getting in even an hour after open, reduces your chances incredibly. Also you get about 60 seconds in there.

Museum of Modern Art.

Art that enriches, they have a free auto tour that helps you to appreciate some works even more, it was a wonderful walk, you need at least 2 hours but if you can give the visit more time to take advantage of the best.

Get Tickets in Advance OnLine

Very nicely done, get there early as it gets very crowded toward the noon hour. As soon as you enter make sure to make reservations for the infinity room. Layout is a little confusing but everybody is very helpful. Audio tour is interesting but several areas did not work. All in all a good two hours

A bit small and the main attraction of the mirrors is only nice and might be with a long waiting time. Overall nice and free so totally recommended.

Very nice exhibition space

Very nice exhibition space. Superb setting for a remarkable, varied collection, very well highlighted. Online reservations a few weeks in advance allow you to visit this museum, free, in good crowds ...

Perfect Spot for Modern Art Lovers
Nov 2019
"The Broad" is an apt name for this museum as it presents a wide array of modern art pieces. Spanning many decades and various disciplines, there's something for everyone - of almost any age - to be seen here. Plan ahead for getting tickets (even if they're free) to see specific installations. You'll need at least two hours to do the visit justice but I'd suggest three or four to really enjoy it.
