Things To Do

Here’s a Cheat Sheet of Free Museum Days in L.A. For December (2015)

November 25, 2015 by Brian Champlin

Looking for a handy list free museum days in December? Got you covered.

The intent of this “cheat-sheet” is to denote specific free days in December for museums that normally charge an admission.

As a reminder, there are over two dozen museums in and around Los Angeles that offer free admission ALL the time which are not listed here.

For those spots 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 free museum options for December.

Also, because it’s the holiday season, please make sure to call to verify museum operating hours when planning your visit, as they may be affected (all museums on this list are closed on Christmas, for example).

Enjoy!
