The Broads collect works by well-known, influential artists, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Jasper Johns, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring ,Cy Twombly, Ed Ruscha, etc. Great to see all of...More

The Broad is a fabulous museum. Avoid the line by getting free timed entry tickets on the museum website. The exhibitions are fabulous.

knock-out building, both interior and exterior. A predictable collection of "must know" contemporary artists. Excellent special exhibitions. Free, must get tix on line early. Also has "standby" line at the museum. Usually works.

Loved this museum - finally went here more to see the building than the art - but the art was wonderful and the atmosphere is great

We enjoyed this museum so much. Stumbled upon ‘free admission’ tickets the night before, which allowed us to skip the standby line and walk right in. These tickets are available on their website year round, but do sell out so make sure to get them...More

We did not make reservation and the wait on Sunday morning is around 2+hours before gaining entrance. You can easily spend 3 to 4 hours inside. There are lots of interesting photos, paintings, and sculptures.

Free admission! We did not know we have to book online to go in. Fortunately we made it in at the onsite standby line. You don't need to wait if you reserve online and are guaranteed to get in. Lots of people during the holiday...More

First, I recommend visiting the web site and registering for free tickets on a particular day and time. Otherwise you will wait a long time to get in. Parking costs $25 and can fill up quickly, so best to get there just after they open....More

If you're visiting during busy times it pays to reserve tickets on-line via their website well in advance since they're timed entry tickets even though free. We had tickets for the first hour of the day and arrived early (second on line), which allowed us...More

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
