The first time I went to The Broad museum in downtown Los Angeles, I was mesmerized by the building’s architecture, the natural lighting of the works and the viewable vault. Today was my second trip to The Broad and I found myself even more impressed. The Broad’s collection is impressive, showcasing works from artists such as Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami and Kara Walker. This museum is worth the trip downtown. However, be sure to get your tickets online before you go to avoid the long queue!
