Some of So Cal’s Largest Museums to Offer Free Admission Jan. 31

Southern California art and culture lovers who haven’t already done so should mark their calendars for January 31. On the last day of the month, more than 20 of the state’s largest museums will offer free admission to all as part of the 10th annual "Museums Free-For-All" program.

The program is “a joint effort to present the arts and culture to the diverse and myriad communities in Southern California,” according to So Cal Museums. It applies to general admission only with exclusions for special exhibitions. The museums are also partnering with Metro, which will offer discount prices to encourage visitors to use the service.

Among this year’s participants will be the California Science Center, the Getty Center and Getty Villa, LACMA, MOCA, and the Pasadena Museum of Art—some of which already offer free admission to visitors. Since the Museum of Tolerance and the Zimmer Children’s Museum are closed on Saturdays, they will offer their free admission on February 1.
