When museums announce that they are waiving admission fees on a specific day, that is a great time to experience the museum.  When 20 Southern California museums join together to offer a free admission day, that’s called Museum-Free-For-All and it’s happening on Saturday, January 25, 2014.

The museums will open their doors and invite visitors free of charge.


In an effort to present the arts and culture to the diverse and myriad communities in Southern California, the SoCal Museums group announced the ninth annual “Museums Free-For-All” happening in January.  The museums—presenting art, cultural heritage, natural history, and science—will open their doors and invite visitors free of charge. This offer is for general museum admission only and may not apply to special ticketed exhibitions. Regular parking fees apply; consult individual museum websites for hours and other visitor information.
