LA’s Free Museum Days

Posted on September 21st, 2009 at 3:49 am by LisaNewton

Los Angeles is a Mecca for museums, from the Getty Museum, to the L.A. County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Museum of Neon Art, or the Museum of Contemporary Art.

For families with children, there’s the Kidspace Children’s Museum, the Skirball Cultural Center, and the Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits

It’s a treasure to have all of these Museums in our city to choose from, and a pleasure to be able to go from one to another, especially when it’s free.

If you’re a regular visitor to Travelin’ Local, you’ve probably noticed the Free Museum Days link in the top toolbar.  We’ve now upgraded its layout to make it even better. Now it’s organized into a calendar to coincide with each museum on the list.

Travelin’ Local now makes it easier to know which Museum exhibition corresponds with their affiliated free days. This helps you to quickly and efficiently choose where to go better.

Introducing TL’s Free Museum Days Calendar (TLFMC):

From the list, some museums have one free day per month, or just a few hours per day per month. However, others are free all the time.  But in all frankness you’ll need to plan ahead, even for the free days.

For example, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens is free for one day per month, but you need advance tickets.  To access additional information on our tab, be sure to click the particular museum you’re interested in, and from there you’ll find a map of the particular Museum’s location, other pertinent links, and additional information such as phone numbers, etc.

Don’t forget that on Saturday and Sunday, October 3rd-4th, the Fifth Annual ‘Museums Free-For-All,’ will be held. It’s a joint effort by the participants to present the arts and culture to the diverse communities in Southern California that they serve. It’s presented by the Museum Marketing Roundtable.

Here’s a list of the 22 participating museums:

Now Travelin’ Local visitors can more easily find what they’re looking for when they’re looking for it. Now that next trip to a local Museum is just a click away to find the information or questions that you need and want.
