Freebies: Museums Are Free This Weekend!

It's the eighth annual Museums Free For All, and everything from the Getty to the Skirball Cultural Center is free to visitors through Sunday.

This weekend's rainy weather is cooperating with at least one event occurring across Southern California -- the eighth annual ``Museums Free For All.''

The event offer free admission either today, Sunday, or both days at 20 art galleries, cultural centers and museums from Long Beach to Pasadena to the Westside of Los Angeles.

Museums that are open for free both days include the Annenberg Space for Photography, the Autry, California African American, California Science Center, Fowler at UCLA, Hammer, Getty Center, and Getty Villa.

Also open for free both days are the Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Latin American Art, the Paley Center for Media, Skirball Cultural Center and the Long Beach State University Art Museum.    Free admission will be offered today only at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

And free admission will be offered Sunday only at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Tolerance, the Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art.

Some museums will charge admission to special shows, or for parking, and some require advance reservations. Exact information about that, and operating hours, is available at www/museumsla.org.

this would have been good to know before today.

I agree... Thursday or Friday would have been better to learn this info especially when we are looking for things to do inside due to rain.

I agree.

I agree with the other commenters that this story is not very timely. On the otherhand, I didn't see anything about it in the LA Times, and what did the museums themselves do to publicize this? That said, how come some Patch readers receive their copies hours before others? Jenny & Mark received their copies in time to post comments at 7 am; my copy didn't arrive until 12:08 pm, which is typical for me.
