If you love learning new things and meandering around galleries, you have to clear your schedule because you’ll have access to 40-plus free museums in L.A. this weekend. Dozens of cultural heritage, art, natural history, and science museums— including many of Los Angeles’ top art galleries—are welcoming visitors for free during the 15th annual SoCal Museum Free-For-All. 

“I’m always impressed by the range of cultural offerings,” said Jennifer Caballero, SoCal Museums President and Skirball Cultural Center Marketing Director, in a recent press release. “From cars, to Cold War artifacts, to modern art, there’s something for everyone.” 

Check out the museums taking part in the SoCal Museum Free-For-All, and start planning your day.
