Those who didn't catch a glimpse of the infamous 340-ton granite Levitated Mass on its way to LACMA can soon see it and the rest of the museum for free all summer long with the purchase of a general admission ticket.

If you buy a general admission ticket to LACMA through June 30, you can sign up for a free summer pass at the ticket office (!!!). You then simply present your pass at the ticket office in exchange for your free ticket each day you visit.

The pass includes basic membership benefits such as free admission to the museum and special exhibitions, museum newsletters as well as discounts on lectures, films, concerts, classes and purchases at the museum store for three months. Check out the full list of benefits here.

Levitated Mass doesn't open to the public until June 24, but in the meantime, you can catch the 50th anniversary James Bond exhibition, "...Is James Bond", or the LACMA Muse Art Walk this Saturday.
