Things To Do

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

December 29, 2015 by Brian Champlin

Readers of the blog may have already heard there’s a museum free-for-all day scheduled for January 30, 2016 (with over two dozen SoCal area museums participating), but just in case that weekend won’t work for your schedule, consider this our reminder you can always find lots of free museum offerings throughout the month.

The intent of this “cheat-sheet” is to denote specific free days in January 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 January.

Enjoy!
