The Broad

The Broad is a new contemporary art museum in Los Angeles that opened September 20th, 2015. I had been patiently waiting to go home for winter break just to go to this museum and finally, on December 31st, my parents and I went!

We arrived at the museum around 9:30am and waited in a line until they opened at 11am. Thankfully we were in the second group of 50 people they let in every 10 minutes. The line behind us wrapped around the museum and down a block, so getting there early is highly recommended if you do not have reserved tickets!

The first floor consists of the museum shop and gallery space. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces from the first floor.

We were able to get tickets to see Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room. You are only given 45 seconds in this room, and it goes by too fast!! Being in this room was one of the coolest experiences and I wish I had more time to take it all in. Lining up to get tickets for this should be the first thing you do once you get in!

The first thing I noticed when we reached the top of the escalator was the ceiling, it is beautiful!

But it did not take long for my attention to be drawn to Jeff Koons’s Tulips

The Broad is definitely a place I will be visiting every time I go back home to California. I look forward to returning and seeing the new pieces and installations from Eli Broad’s collection!
