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 July, 2018.

A reminder for this month that The Natural History Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits Museum both skip their free admission first-Tuesdays for the months of July and August. That said, La Brea Tar Pits offers free late-night Fridays (5 to 8 p.m.) starting this month and ending in August. NHM and La Brea Tar Pits Museum will also have free admission days on every Tuesday in September.

As always remember 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 July.

Enjoy!
