The Broad Museum
This contemporary art museum is home to one of the most prominent collections of contemporary and postwar art. The museum is named in honor of philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, who established the Broad Art Foundation in 1984. The foundation announced plans to build this museum in 2007 and it opened in 2015. The museum's contemporary building was designed by the late Zaha Hadid and features two floors of gallery space. The museum is also home to the Broad Art Foundation and its art library that lends its collection to other libraries across the globe.
