What an striking building -- with just Big Concepts on display inside. There was one interesting, small exhibit of paintings downstairs, then three artworks you could see on display inside the glassed-in archives. Otherwise, the space was devoted to concept art. I tried to puzzle...More

I recommend that anyone visiting Lansing or East Lansing take the time to visit the Broad Art Museum. The architecture of the building is stunning, and I always enjoy the exhibits, which regularly change. The Museum was designed by the late Zaha Hadid, a world-famous...More

Came here with a kindergarten field trip and will not come back. The building was split into four sections and just felt like a bunch of junk and not real art at all. We were there sometime in the 2013-2014 school year.

The Eli Broad Museum is very cool, modern, and angular in design. The exhibits range from thought provoking to what was the artist thinking? Even though most of what they display is not the type of art I prefer, I am glad the Broad Museum...More

It is free. There is a donation box for if you would like to make a contribution, but they don't force you to make a contribution. Being a student with no money - I didn't.
