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 February, 2019, which includes a special free admission day at LACMA for President’s Day on February 19. As always please 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.
