Things To Do

Here’s a Cheat Sheet of Free Museum Days in L.A. For February (2016)

January 27, 2016 by Brian Champlin

By now you’ve probably heard about the massive SoCal museum free-for-all that’s taking place this Saturday, January 30. But if you can’t take advantage of the free-for-all (or don’t want to deal with the crowds), consider looking ahead to February to plan a free museum adventure.

To that end, the intent of this “cheat-sheet” is to denote specific free days in February 2016 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 freebie options for February.

Enjoy!
