Group Visits

One way to bring a group to The Broad is to book free general admission tickets. Only 9 tickets can be booked per transaction, so if you are booking 10 or more tickets, you will need to do so in multiple transactions.

The Broad offers organized group visits, as well as school visits for grades 3 through 12. Learn more about group visit options below.

The $10/person self-guided group visit does not include access to Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away (2013) or paid special exhibitions on view. Additional fees apply.

The Broad opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. on weekends. We recommend visiting on weekdays if possible, or arriving before 11 a.m. on Saturdays or Sundays.

Yes! To see more contemporary art, we recommend taking a trip to MOCA, across from The Broad on the east side of Grand Avenue (keep in mind MOCA is closed Tuesdays). If your group is interested in architecture, consider a stop at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, immediately north of The Broad, and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, at the corner of Grand Avenue and Temple Street. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, consider Grand Park, just opposite the Music Center on the east side of Grand.

We do not have parking available for vehicles over 7’2”. Buses are able to pull up in front of the museum along Grand Avenue to drop off and pick up.

Your group should assemble outside the south entrance to The Broad, located adjacent to the Plaza. Your group leader can approach any Visitor Service Associate who will give a private introduction and direct your group into the building.
