November isn’t what I would call primetime for free museum days in Los Angeles, but there is plenty of excellent programming on deck on at institutions across the county. Before we get to the main list, check out a quick sampling of free events you can check out this coming month at L.A. museums and cultural centers:

As I always remind you there are at least two dozen museums in and around Los Angeles that offer ongoing free admission for all-ages, all the time (The Getty, The Getty Villa, The Broad, Hammer Museum, etc…). We’ve compiled a list of those here, so be sure to check that out if you need more ideas. And, as always, make sure you do your due diligence before you visit to make sure you have your reservation locked in (if required) and the free days are still applicable.
