Create an itinerary including Bradbury Building
Head downtown to see Bradbury Building and star in your own film noir. Originally designed by Sumner Hunt, Bradbury Building has been standing tall since 1893 when a millionaire businessman Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned it from George Wyman. Added to the list of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission, the building played a starring role in many music videos of artists like Janet Jackson and Genesis, as well as various films. Take a stroll through the structure to admire the Romanesque style that rules the decor--including an interior central court--or ride the open-cage elevators for a unique experience. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Los Angeles trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Beautiful Victorian interior atrium space. It's a working office building so you cannot take the open cage elevators up - just admire the architecture.

  • Another consistent tip on most LA recommended sights… this one was cool to see. Iconic building with very unique style and cool to see the reference to movies it has appeared in. A working office building but you are allowed to access ground floor and take a look at the interior. Definitely worth adding to your itinerary if you are in the area 🤙🏼
  • Beautiful building worth visiting if you are in the area. It is free to enter to see the interior architecture. Elevators are not for public use. Entrance only from Broadway Street.
