This weekend more than 40 museums—presenting art, cultural heritage, natural history, and science—will open their doors and invite visitors to attend free of charge.

“For 14 years, this event has brought many thousands of additional visitors from across the region to our exciting and vital museums. It’s a special weekend that invites Southern Californians and others to branch out and explore museums they may have never before visited, or to return to familiar spots,” says Jennifer Caballero, SoCal Museums President and Marketing Director at the Skirball Cultural Center. “We are thrilled to continue this tradition, which helps keep Southern California culture accessible to all.”

The Free-for-All also serves as a reminder that free visitor days are available year-round at museums across Southern California. A calendar of free days can be found at socalmuseums.org/free.
