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 April are now available for advance reservation. Please note that the first floor galleries will be closed for reinstallation from March 21-April 28, but Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room will remain on view.

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. 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.

There are two ways to access the museum:

1.) Reserve advance tickets

Advance free general admission tickets are often fully booked. Advance tickets are made available on the first of each month for the following month (i.e. on April 1 at noon, tickets for May will be made available). Free general admission tickets through April are now available for advance reservation.

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 Tuesday through Sunday at 1:15 and 3:15 p.m. Tours meet on the third floor. Accessible with free general admission tickets.

Special Installation: Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room

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.

Time in the Infinity Mirrored Room cannot be reserved in advance of your visit. Due to the limited capacity of the installation, not all visitors are able to experience it, as the waitlist for viewings usually books up early in the day. This installation will be on view through fall 2017. Visit our Ticketing and Visit FAQ page to learn more about how to see this installation.  

 

Coming Soon: Oracle

From everyday experiences to protest movements as monumental as the Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East, to themes that probe systems of social control or examine global commerce, artworks in Oracle tackle the effects of organizational frameworks on global events and private individuals. Some works in the installation symbolize marketplace machinations, both official and unofficial, while others are meditations on games, surveillance, vast data sets, mathematical and biological patterns, and even the logic of art itself. Just under the surface of the works in Oracle is an air of anxiety, as if individuals' freedoms within these manmade phenomena are illusory or beyond reach. This installation opens April 29, 2017.
