SoCal Museums announced that the 12th annual Museums Free-for-All-Day will be held on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017. On this date, dozens of museums, three in Pasadena and many others throughout Los Angeles, will open their doors to visitors free of charge.
“This has been a tremendously popular joint effort to present the arts and culture to the diverse and myriad communities of Southern California,” said Jennifer Caballero, SoCal Museums Vice President and Marketing Director at the Skirball Cultural Center. “We hope that visitors take advantage of this day by going to a museum they have always wanted to see or by revisiting an old favorite.”
The event also hopes to raise awareness of free visitor days available year-round at museums across Southern California. A calendar of free days can be found on the SoCal Museums’ website at SoCalMuseums.org/free.
Museums Free-for-All has partnered with Metro, encouraging visitors to Go Metro to explore participating museums, many of which are a short walk away from Metro bus or rail. You can visit metro.net/discounts to learn about discounts at participating museums.
The Free-for-All Day offer is for general museum admission only and does not apply to specially ticketed exhibitions. Regular parking fees apply at each museum. Make sure to consult individual museum websites for hours, directions, and other visitor information.
