This Saturday, January 30, over 20 SoCal museums invite you to visit free of charge. Museums covering fine art, culture, natural history and the sciences will all be represented. Take note — The California Science Museum and LACMA do not include special exhibits with free entry, and you must contact Getty Villa for timed tickets. The Museum of Tolerance, Riverside Art Museum, Skirball Cultural Center and Zimmer Childrens Museum will be offering free entry on Sunday, January 30th instead of Saturday.
Some of the exhibits we recommend are:
Annenberg Space for Photography Life: A Journey Through Time
Autry Museum of the American Southwest The Hateful Eight Costume Display and History and Cultures of Mexico and the Southwest
California African American Museum Coloring Independently: 1940s African American Film
Getty Villa Permanent Exhibit: Antiquities
Japanese American National Museum Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty
Museum of Latin American Art Somewhere Over El Arco Iris
Natural History Museum The New Dinosaur Hall and The Insect Zoo
Orange County Museum of Art Permanent Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art
The Paley Center for Media David Bowie: Sound + Vision
Pasadena Museum of California Art Kosmic Krylon Garage
Skirball Cultural Center Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams
Weisman Museum of Art Andy Warhol Life & Legends
Although we highly recommend The Broad, The Hammer, and California Science Center (For 2 bucks you can ride on a high-wire bicycle), but the permanent exhibits at these museums are always free.
