Over 40 museums will drop their admission fees on Saturday, January 25. It’s the perfect opportunity to knock a couple of cultural to-dos off your list, like the Japanese American National Museum, Natural History Museum, LACMA and more. Even the still-to-open Academy Museum is joining in with an activation on the west side of its campus.
“We’re proud to celebrate 15 years of Free-for-All, welcoming visitors across Southern California to enjoy a wide variety of museums. It’s a great chance to revisit old favorites or discover something new,” said Jennifer Caballero, SoCal Museums President and Marketing Director at the Skirball Cultural Center. “I’m always impressed by the range of cultural offerings. From cars to Cold War artifacts to modern art, there’s something for everyone.”
You’ll still have to pay to see any exhibitions that require a special ticket (though the Broad is dropping the fee for its excellent Shirin Neshat exhibition) and for parking, but free admission – it’s an offer you can’t refuse.
