If your New Year's Resolution was to spend more time checking out local museums, your budget is no excuse this weekend, as several area facilities will be absolutely FREE to visit.
The Museums Free-For-All event is in its eighth year, and for several venues the offer stands for both days. Exceptions are ticketed events, like the California Science Center's Endeavour space shuttle exhibit, and for The Getty, you'll need to book time-based free tickets. Over at LACMA, the Kubrick and Caravaggio exhibits are not included, and for all venues, things like parking will still cost you a few bucks. Still, on January 26 and/or 27, places like The Autry, The Craft and Folk Art Museum, The Fowler Museum at UCLA The Hammer Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Skirball Cultural Center, and The Paley Center for Media and more will be free for you to roam and enjoy.
Here's a full list of participating museums, and on what days they will be free:
