The Broad Museum in L.A…

Over the winter break, I had a chance to visit family in Pasadena. It was an incredible visit, highlighted by our visit to the new Broad Art Museum in downtown Los Angeles.

Tickets to the Broad are free, but there is a waiting list…It’s a beautiful building in downtown L.A…

It is also right next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall

The Broad is not a gigantic building, but the inside is very open and airy…it doesn’t seem crowded at all…

Elevators and stairwells feel like secret passageways…

That was just a snippet of everything in the museum…it is a gigantic collection…going down one of the stairwells, there is a window to the rest of the collection in storage…
