If you're in southern California this weekend, some the best of the area’s science, art, and history will be free to all.
The museums included are some of the city’s most famous, like the California Science Center, Getty Center and Villa, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and the Natural History Museum.
Visitors to the museums on Sunday will get free general admission, although entrance to special exhibits or ticketed events will not be included.
The event is presented in partnership with Los Angeles Metro, who has arranged for visitors to receive a discount at select museum gift shops when they present their transit access passes.
