A+D Museum


Founded in 2000, the Architecture and Design Museum became open to the public in January 2001. It

is housed in the Bradbury Building which is located at 304 South Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. The space was generously donated by Ira Yellin. In 2003, the Bradbury building was sold and the museum had to move temporarily to a location on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California.

The A+D Museum found a new home on Museum Row in the Miracle Mile district at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard in 2006, just across the street from LACMA. In May 2009, the A+D has been transferred to

a more permanent location at 6032 Wilshire Boulevard. The director of the museum is Tibbie Dunbar.

The A+D was created to build up an awareness of architecture and design by means of exhibits, educational programs, and public outreach. Its target audience is the design community as well as the everyday man in Los Angeles’ greater area.

A non-profit organization, the A+D Museum is funded through public donations, government and private foundation grants and corporate sponsors. It is a member of the American Association of Museums, the International Confederation of Architectural Museums and is an affiliate of design industry associations such as the American Institute of Architects, L.A., the Industrial Designers Society of America, L.A. and the American Architectural Foundation.
