Here’s a Cheat Sheet of Free Museum Days in L.A. For May (2017)

May 1, 2017 by We Like L.A. Staff

The intent of this “cheat-sheet” is to denote specific free days in any given month where Los Angeles museums that normally charge an admission waive their entry fees (not including parking). For this post we’re detailing the month of May, 2017.

Special for this month remember that six museums situated along the Arroyo Seco Parkway will be free for Museums of the Arroyo Day on May 21. Plus, LACMA is free on the Memorial Day Holiday!

Keep in mind there are over two dozen museums in and around Los Angeles that offer free admission ALL the time which are not listed here.  We’ve compiled a handy list of ALL of those free museums (including favorites like The Getty, California Science Center, The Hammer Museum, and more) if you’d like to explore all your freebie options for May.

Enjoy!
