The Broad Museum is one of the most stunning contemporary art museum I have visited. It is located downtown L.A and opens its doors to everyone for free.
The art exhibited is a true selection of the best artists in the world, being in L.A and not stop by this museum would be a real pity !
I guess we all want to know a little bit more about how this museum was born and opened its door to us, so here is a short story.
Eli Broad is the 185th wealthiest person according to Forbes. He made a lot of money, was very focus in the cultural life of Los Angeles and decided to build a museum: the Broad. He also participated in different cultural projects for the city of Los Angeles in order to name it: “The cultural capital of the world” .
Here is their story
Things to know before going:
– Take your tickets in advance because the waiting list is long ! Here for the tickets
– There is one room you really want to see but you can only take a ticket once at the museum: Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room
– For the parking: you have several parkings around cash only so don’t forget to bring 10USD in cash with you !
Now let’s visit together the museum …. A few pictures to attract your mind to this amazing art place.

On this floor, you will be able to find the Mirror Rooms i told you about above, but also another room where you will live a unique experience. A room where you can hear music and a song by different singers all together but separated… I’ll let you discover.
Once you’re done with this floor, take the stairway and go up to the next one. You will arrive in the most remarkable contemporary art such as Jeff Koons or Damien Hirst or Andreas Gursky.
