The Broad will reopen to the public on May 26, joining a slew of cultural institutions that have already welcomed back guests.

If you go, you’ll be able to see several new installations on the third floor, including 13 works from Jean-Michel Basquiat, a mini-survey of the museum’s Roy Lichtenstein holdings, nine works from Kara Walker, and an Andy Warhol gallery.

On view through Oct. 3 is Invisible Sun, which features 59 works from artists including El Anatsui, Alexander Calder,Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Julie Mehretu, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, and Cindy Sherman. This exhibit was developed last summer and shows artists’ responses to topics like the AIDS crisis, gender- and race-based violence, capitalism, and colonialism. Over a third of the pieces are on view for the first time.

While admission to the Broad is free, there is a reservation system in place. It goes live again on May 12 at 10 a.m. Masks and temperature checks will be enforced. Some other new digital additions include a mobile museum guide and a live text chat feature that allows you to ask Broad staff questions, contact-free, as you browse.

Looking for a museum to hit up now? LACMA, the Autry, The Petersen Museum, LA Plaza de Cultura de Artes, The Huntington, and The Hammer have all reopened. The Skirball reopens on May 15.
