The Broad makes its collection of contemporary art from the 1950s to the present accessible to the widest possible audience by presenting exhibitions and operating a lending program to art museums and galleries worldwide. By actively building a dynamic collection that features in-depth representations of influential contemporary artists and by advancing education and engagement through exhibitions and diverse public programming, the museum enriches, provokes, inspires, and fosters appreciation of art of our time.
General admission to The Broad is free and includes access to the third floor galleries, which display a robust and changing selection of work by artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, Andy Warhol, and more.
General admission tickets are timed and available every half hour, up until one hour before the museum closes. General admission tickets do not include access Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013.
The Broad is closed on Mondays, and apparently, it’s always very busy- it even has standby lines! The onsite standby line is available at the museum every day except Mondays, when the museum is closed. Admission for the onsite standby line is first come, first served, based on availability. Check the standby line Twitter account @TheBroadStandby for up-to-date wait times. On holiday weekends, wait time in the onsite standby lines can be up to two or three hours. The onsite standby line closes 90 minutes before the museum closes, and may close earlier on busy days.
