These Six Museums In Pasadena And L.A. Will Be Free On Sunday
You know how we just wrote something about how you should avoid Pasadena this weekend? What with all the expected traffic?
Well, we're going to straight-up contradict ourselves right now and say that you should drop by Pasadena for some quality museum time.
Sunday will be Museums of the Arroyo Day, when six museums in Pasadena and L.A. will be free from 12:00 p.m. to 5 p.m. (note: the last museum entrance happens at 4 p.m.). The participating museums will be the Autry’s Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington Campus, the Gamble House, Heritage Square Museum, the Los Angeles Police Museum, the Lummis Home and Garden, and the Pasadena Museum of History.
As we'd mentioned, traffic will likely be insane. Organizers note that the event is accessible from the Metro Gold Line, so we definitely suggest that you take that option. And from there you can take advantage of two free shuttle loops with service going between Gamble House/Pasadena Museum of History and the Los Angeles Police Historical Museum, and between the Police Historical Museum and the Lummis Home/Autry’s Historic Southwest Museum. Organizers note that, unlike previous years, the Highland Park shuttle will not have a stop at Heritage Square. Check here for all your transportation queries.
