Here’s a Cheat Sheet of Free Museum Days in L.A. For September (2017)

August 30, 2017 by We Like L.A. Staff

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 September, 2017.

There are a couple highlights we want to call out to for the coming month, foremost of which is the massive museum free-for-all day taking place on September 17 to celebrate the launch of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. Scroll down to the link below for more info.

Also, be advised that both the Natural History Museum and the La Brea Tarpits Museum are both free every Tuesday of September.

For other freebie options, be sure to check out our handy list of free museums and museum days in Los Angeles. Otherwise, enjoy!
