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.

It's that special time of year again where we can get our culture on without having to pay a dime. Several museums around SoCal will be offering free admission on Jan. 31, and a couple on Feb. 1 as part of the 10th annual "Museums Free-For-All" event.

Some of the big ones on the list include LACMA and MOCA, and there are a bevy of different types of museums focused on different topics from art to science and natural history. While you can get free general admission, keep in mind that special-ticketed events and parking aren't free.

Here's a list of all the museums offering free admission on Saturday, Jan. 31. For the ones that are closed on Saturdays, there's a note next to them that mention that they're giving free admission on Sunday, Feb. 1 instead:

If anything, we hope your museum experience is just as magical as the one these guys had in 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off:
