FREE Southern California Museum Day is Saturday, January 30

Mark your calendar to attend as many of the 20+ museums in Los Angeles that are opening their doors to the public FREE OF CHARGE this Saturday. Instead of driving, some of the museums are near a metro stop. Museums Free-for-All has partnered with Metro, offering discounts to visitors exploring participating museums. Click on to get more information.

Spend a day in the epicenter of art, cultural heritage, natural history, and science. One that I highly recommend is The Petersen Automotive Museum on Wilshire Blvd.
