The building is realy the real show in the art museum.The shows were too modern for me but do not miss visiting the art gallery. The architect is Zahar Hadid. She is realy special.

This small but interesting museum is on one of the edges of campus. If you are into art, go see it. Has three floors and is free. An interesting example of a heralded architects work.

Yes the architecture is wonderfully weird but what do you expect from a modern art museum! Always provocative world class exhibitions.

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

In addition it is fairly small and unappealingly set-up. I won't comment on the art exhibited as that is always open for interpretation but simply as a facility this is a bit of a failure.

way out of place on this campus. All the buildings are brick and mortar, this sticks out like the ugly duckling. Even the faculty I have talked to feel it is the ugliest building on campus. Inside it is worth the stop.

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.
