This is a gem of world-class modern art. You should have reservation. The admission is FREE, but the crowds make it necessary to have a reservation system. There is a stand-by line for those without reservations, with an app that provides an estimate of wait...More

Great museum, and for free (just register in advance on the website to avoid lines). Can really only recommend it! (spectacular Kusama's installation "Infinity Mirror Rooms").

Go see their Infinity Rooms and the whole trip will be worth it. Kusama is a great artist and add to that the other exhibits in the Broad, everything from Warhols to Koons, it'll do for a great morning to enjoy. After that if you...More

This museum has free admission but it’s best that you book your tickets in advance online. Otherwise, the queue is terribly long in the morning. Upon entering, best to go straight to the Infinity mirror room. Again, I heard the wait could be up to...More

First of, the allure of this eggshell lattice print encapsulating the building is beautifully designed with venetian plaster like a fluffy cloud. The facade draws you in as the unconventional entrance is the sharp corner of the building that's been sliced at the base. As...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
