Immerse yourself in art at the best museums in our region, for no cost.

Museums and art galleries across Southern California are joining forces to make it easier for members for locals to gain access to the diversity of the arts and culture available here in Los Angeles and environs.

SoCal Museums announces the 11th Annual Museums Free-for-All on Saturday January 30, 2016. Over twenty museums—presenting art, cultural heritage, natural history, and science—will open their doors and invite visitors to attend their museums free of charge.

“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,” comments Alex Capriotti, SoCal Museums President and The Broad’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “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.”
