More than two dozens museums in Southern California will be offering free general admission to the public on Saturday as part of the11th annual Museums Free-For-All Day.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), and the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum are among those included in the free day.
Other participating institutions, such as the Broad, the Getty Center, the Getty Villa and the Annenberg Space for Photography, already offer free admission.
Some of the museums are closed on Saturday, and consequently are offering free admission on Sunday as part of the program.
Many of the included museums also offer a select number of free days throughout the year.
The free offer is only good for general admission; specially ticketed exhibitions and general parking are not included, according to SoCal Museum, which backs the annual initiative.
“We are thrilled that museums in Southern California are able to offer the Museums Free-for-All Day for the 11th year in a row,” Alex Capriotti, SoCal Museums President, said in a news release on the organization’s website. “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.”
