Los Angeles: The Broad Museum of Modern Art

The Broad is a new super hyped modern art museum that just opened in downtown LA. It is located directly across the street from the Walt Disney Hall and also portrays a massive, unique architecture that boldly rivals the Disney Hall. Part of all the hype is fueled for these reasons alone. 

Inside contains many new modern art features including sculptures, painting and photography. Having already been to a few art museums, the atmosphere as you walk into the Broad is unlike other museums. Maybe it is still really new but the feeling as you walk through each room simply does not feel like a regular museum. The rooms are very spacious and the white walls make it feel massive. It is simply very interesting to walk through.

The museum also features the Infinity Mirrored Room, a room filled with a seemingly endless array of mirrors and lights. If you are interested in seeing this attraction, you will need to sign up and schedule a viewing for the same day. Located across the restrooms on the bottom floor, there is a kiosk where you can register for the viewing. The best time is to sign up early in the morning because viewing is very limited. This mirrored room is limited and expected to only be available until the end of February, although there is currently no specific end date. If you are interested in art or willing to give it a shot, the Broad museum is an excellent way to expose yourself to art museums.

As of now, viewing is free entry to the public. If you are interested in viewing the art, your best bet is to go early on a weekday in order to avoid the massive weekend lines. Also, it is free. Who can argue with free?

    • Thanks for linking to my post! I actually visited the Rain Room the same day I went to the Broad. The Rain Room is really cool and I have a new blog post coming up about it! Thank you again!
