Museums-Free for All


Free admission on March 23

SoCal Museums has announced that this year’s Museums Free-for-All will take place on Saturday, March 23. This initiative began nearly 20 years ago to help invite audiences and encourage cultural participation across Southern California. More than thirty museums and cultural institutions will be participating this year in what has become a celebration of the region’s most vibrant cultural landscape. 

“We are thrilled, once again, to invite visitors from across Southern California to see the remarkable range of art, cultural heritage, natural history, film, and science that our museums and cultural organizations have to offer. The Museums Free-for-All has always been an opportunity for people to see something new or to revisit a treasured spot,” said Alexa Nishimoto, SoCal Museums resident and marketing associate with the Japanese-American National Museum. “The Free-for-All also serves as a reminder that many museums here in Southern California are always free and others offer these types of opportunities year-round.”

The offer adheres to general museum admission only and doesn’t apply to specially ticketed exhibitions. Regular parking fees apply at each museum. Please check individual museum websites for hours, directions, and additional visitor information.
