Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Mark your calendars, everyone: Next Saturday, January 25, is the annualMuseum Free-For-All, which means general admission to many museums around Los Angeles will be free.

The annual event, put on by SoCal Museums, is a way to show Angelenos what many of the museums that are peppered throughout Southern California have to offer. While general admission to all the museums participating in the program is free, added expenses, such as parking and certain exhibitions that require a special ticket to attend, will still be at regular price.

Some of the museums, such as the Getty Center, are already free, and the Hammer Museum is switching over to free admission on Feb. 9, according to the Los Angeles Times. But for many others, this is a great opportunity to experience a multitude of art and culture at many L.A. museums for free

Here's the full list of museums participating in the Museum Free-For-All:
