The building is incredible. Start there. The exhibits are well thought out and displayed. You can also see where The Broads have other pieces in the collection stored. So I’m sure the exhibits rotate or change. It’s incredible to see some of this art up...More

The tulips sculpture at the top of the stairs really gets immediate attention. All modern art each with its own story. Easy free flowing arrangement that allows to come back to revisit a captivating art. And it is free!

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
