The Broad

Opened in September 2015, The Broad is a modern and striking contemporary art museum featuring some of the most outstanding post-war works from around the world.

Founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, the building was designed with an innovative concept that makes it a popular architectural attraction. It is covered by a metal, honeycomb-like structure known as a "veil", which gives it a modern and unique appearance.


With an area of 140,000 square metres distributed over 3 floors, the museum exhibits a small sample of the over 2,000 works that make up the private collection of the Broad Art Foundation, one of the world's most important post-war contemporary art collections. The museum offers an extensive programme of temporary exhibitions that rotate their works regularly throughout the year.


The Broad is a museum that has important pieces in its collection and is highly recommended for contemporary art lovers interested in seeing a special exhibition. You can also make the most of your visit to admire the famous Walt Disney Concert Hall that is located next to it.
