Anytime a new museum opens in Los Angeles, it’s a big deal. The Broad, though, proved to be a monumental moment in recent L.A. cultural history thanks to the museum’s free admission, distinctive design and big-ticket collection. It’s yet another landmark to prove to the world that L.A. is a city rich with cultural institutions.

The contemporary art museum is the public home for Eli and Edythe Broad’s collection of over 2,000 post-war works. Though only about 250 of those pieces of art will be on display at once, it’s still a lot to take in. Make the most of your visit with our guide to the Broad, including some tips to know before you arrive, our favorite works of art, a look inside the gift shop and what to do in the area once you’re done exploring the museum.
