LA is home to some of the world's biggest, best, most well-known, and most important museums, as well as some lesser-known gems. The role of museums in providing an informal educational experience for children and adults alike is clear, but it often costs money to go to these museums. And even though the money almost always goes directly back into the museums' operations, if you love museums as much as we do, then you could make a pretty sizable dent in your bank account.

Luckily for us, most of the museums have certain days each week or each month when admission is absolutely one hundred percent free. The folks over at have been kind enough to put all of that information in one handy list.
