October 26, 2015 by Brian Champlin

Thinking about visiting a museum in L.A. this November? Make sure you’re up to date on all the free days.

Below you’ll find a chronological list of all the special monthly free days calendared for this November at museums (which normally charge) throughout the Los Angeles county area.


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, and 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 November.

As always, enjoy the freebies.
