Visit + Tickets

General admission to The Broad is free. Advance free general admission tickets are often fully booked, but an onsite standby line is available at the museum every day except Mondays, when the museum is closed. Tickets through January are now available for advance reservation

The Broad’s third-floor galleries display a robust and changing selection of works from the Broad collection and are accessible with free general admission. Creature, an installation of works from the collection, is on view in the first-floor galleries and is accessible with free general admission. Also on view on the first floor is Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room, a mirror-lined chamber housing a dazzling and seemingly endless LED light display. This experiential artwork has extremely limited capacity, accommodating one visitor at a time for about a minute, and requires a separate free timed same-day reservation which ticket holders are able to reserve, pending availability, after arrival into the museum. Time in the Infinity Mirrored Room cannot be reserved in advance of your visit. Due to the limited capacity, not all visitors are able to experience this installation, as the queue for viewings usually books up early in the day. For best chances to see this installation, we recommend one of the following: 1.) book a ticket for early in the day for a future date; 2.) stand in the onsite ticketing line early in the day.

2.) Get in the onsite standby line for first come, first served access

The onsite standby line for general admission 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 our Twitter feed @TheBroadStandby below for up-to-date wait times. On holiday weekends, wait time in the onsite standby line 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. Please note that the standby line is in direct sunlight for some of the day. We recommend preparing for the weather and wait by bringing water and snacks to drink and eat in line, wearing a hat, and wearing sunscreen. Note that food and drink must be consumed before entering the museum. Water bottles can be carried in your bag with the top closed.

The Broad's Visitor Services Associates regularly update The Broad Standby twitter feed with the latest information on the standby wait times.

 


 

On View

The Broad Collection

On view in the third-floor galleries is a robust and changing selection of works from the Broad collection. The installation includes works by major artists who came to prominence in the 1950s, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. The Pop art of the 1960s—an area of great depth in the collection—is represented through works by Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol, among others. Moving into the 1980s, the installation presents a rich concentration of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kara Walker, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger, and Jeff Koons. Throughout the day, The Broad's Visitor Services Associates offer pop-up art talks in the galleries. Visitor Services Associates also lead public gallery tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays at 2:15 p.m., and Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 2:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. Tours meet on the third floor. Accessible with free general admission tickets.

Collection Installation: Creature

Now on view at The Broad is Creature, a free general admission installation that fills the museum’s first-floor galleries with more than 50 works presenting approaches to figuration and representations of the self in the Broad collection. From slick avatars and popular icons to images rooted in mythology and animal instincts, the installation features works by over 25 artists including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ellen Gallagher, Leon Golub, Jenny Holzer, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, and Andy Warhol plus Thomas Houseago’s Giant Figure (Cyclops), 2011, which is making its U.S. debut. Ranging from artworks that examine the human body, to others that allude to a physical presence outside of the artwork itself, Creature offers an array of lenses through which to view the human experience, some scientifically based and others drawing inspiration from cultural representations of how living things change over time. This installation will be on view through March 19, 2017.
