The Broad is a great place to go if you’re low on cash or simply enjoy looking at art because admission is complimentary. It opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays and at 10 a.m. on weekends, the closing time ranges depending on the day. It is closed on Mondays. Some popular things to see while you’re there are the infinity room, however, only two people can go in at once or you could choose to go in solo. A recommendation is to sign up to go in the infinity room once you arrive and they will text you once it’s your turn to go. The wait can be about three hours at times, but in the meantime you can check the museum or you could even leave the museum and return. Another interesting thing to check out while you’re there is The Visitors which is a room with nine different screens. The artists on the screen play different instruments but are singing the same lyrics. It is definitely a sight to see and it is very relaxing and captivating.
