We were in LA for a few days and signed up for a 12:30pm entrance to the Broad. As we had recently seen Love is Calling in at the ICA in Boston, we wanted to see Kusama's Infinity Room at the Broad..... more »
very suggestive place, characterized by futuristic and very particular architectures, almost unique. the structure hosts important contemporary exhibitions and the staff is very kind and qualified. ideal to spend at least 2 hours to appreciate evolved paintings, technologies and sculptures. parking spaces everywhere for those who want to travel by public transport. in the area you can also find excellent dining options and good Italian cuisine, with Italian espresso, and it's not a small thing. recommended!
The architecture alone is worth the visit here. What an amazing building, inside and out. The place is bathed in natural light, making it such a pleasure to view the incredible art collection. The art is so very cool, and curated so well. The store on the ground floor is worth a stop, and the books sold are hard not to buy after being inspired by the art collection. Definitely park under the building as it is the most convenient. And make sure to reserve free tickets for entry as data ahead as you can.
