Hats On for a Free Day of Culture & Fun: Museums of the Arroyo Day is Sunday
Sunday, May 15th marks the 22nd anniversary of Museums of the Arroyo Day, where five museums located along the Arroyo Seco in Los Angeles and Pasadena open their doors free of charge from noon to 5 p.m. There is a full schedule of events, including tours, kid-friendly activities, live performances, and demos for the five facilities, which are The Gamble House, Heritage Square, The Los Angeles Police Society Historical Museum, Lummis Home and Garden, and the Pasadena Museum of History.
This year's theme is "Hats," so, if you're heading out to one or more of the venues, make sure to don your favorite head-topper.
A map for taking a trip to all five venues on foot is downloadable from the MOTA site, as well as info on getting there via Metro. Be sure to plan to get to your last stop by 4 p.m., as all the venues will close up at 5 p.m.
