Everything to Know About The Broad: LA's Coolest New Art Museum

On September 20th, DTLA's $140-million contemporary art museum, The Broad, finally opened its doors, immediately becoming our city's most-Instagrammed venue. Filled with nearly 2,000 pieces of mindblowing masterworks from the private collection of philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, the Bunker Hill building was designed by world-renowned architectural firm Diller Scofido + Renfro and features everything from Jeff Koons's famed "Balloon Dog" to Yayoi Kusama's magical "Infinity Mirrored Room."

Our sister site Curbed LA scored a full tour of the space, noting that entry is 100% free, and there are "no admission desks in the Flinstone-y lobby, just smartphone-wielding museum workers to check you in before you ascend the long escalator (or tube elevator) to the main galleries on the third floor. You can then make your way down through the peekaboo storage area on the second floor to more first-floor galleries."

Explore the 120,000-square-foot museum above, and book a reservation here. Tickets are pretty much sold out for the month of October, so we suggest reserving a November spot ASAP. There's also an onsite ticketing line available daily, but entry isn't guaranteed.

The Broad is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 11am to 5pm, Thursday and Friday from 11am to 8pm, Saturday from 10am to 8pm, and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
