Remember in Alice In Wonderland when Alice shrinks down to an itty bitty size so that the table becomes HUGE? That is the experience I had at The Broad when standing underneath my favorite art piece, Robert Thurriens Under The Table. I loved feeling like a tiny human in a Giant’s home! I just wanted to climb up the big chair…but, “don’t touch the artwork”! This was my favorite piece, but the main attraction that people wait in line to see is Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room.
If you plan your day well at The Broad, L.A.’s newest (2015) and FREE museum, then you won’t have to wait long. Tickets are released the 1st of every month for reservations. I recommend nabbing an early time slot to ensure viewing of the Infinity Mirrored Room. There is also a standby line available–arrive early and be prepared to wait 40 minutes for museum entry along with the wait time for the Infinity Room.
The museum has 3 floors. The Infinity Room is on the 1st floor; enter and head left to the kiosk in the center of the room to SIGN UP for the 45-second timed experience. Later, take the stairs to the 2nd floor to get a peek at the vault. The 3rd floor has the bulk of the collection with works by Warhol and Lichtenstein.
