On the last Saturday in January, more than 50 museums in the L.A. area will offer free admission (not including specially ticketed exhibitions), allowing local residents an amazing opportunity to check out the culture of their city free of charge.

Participants for this year include many locations that are not normally free such as the Natural History Museum, LACMA, MOCA, and Descanso Gardens along with museums that regularly offer free admission such as both Getty campuses and The Broad.
