The building is clearly what I liked most. It looks fantastic, as does the nextdoor Philharmonic Concert building. Inside, there aren't that many pieces on display, and some rooms are far more attractive than others. Quite a line to get in without a reservation.

One of the greatest collections of contemporary art I've ever seen, very iconic pieces. The museum is rather small, so it's not overwhelming. Great architecture too. I came there around 6 p.m. and there was no queue in the stand-by line, I just walked in,...More

Striking architecture. Next to Disney Concert Hall, the pair are top flight examples of new and beautiful architecture. Entry is by long escalator (There are stairs and a very modern elevator). At top of escalator through a tunnel-like structure, one arrives in a large open...More

So had to queue about an hour after it opened - but believe you can book advance tickets A relatively small museum but still interesting - and with free entry hard to be critical

We were impressed by the curation and display of the Broad's rotating collection. We were able to enter in less than an hour from standby. However, be prepared for a crowd that is likely there solely for their Instagram posts. The constant selfies can distract...More

The permanent collection of contemporary art collected by the Broad family is extensive and wide-ranging. Only a small percentage of their collection is on display at any one time, so when going back to see a new temporary show it is likely that you will...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
