Where to take the Grandparents this Weekend
If it's a day with the folks tomorrow, you might want to head out toHeritage Square Museum as anyone over 65 gets in free ($10 if your a youngin'). And if they know something about Los Angeles in the 1940s or before, they may participate in an oral history project too. "Old-Timers" Day aims to bring together true Los Angeles veterans from 12 to 4:00 p.m. at the museum located in Highland Park (if they are enthusiastic walkers, take the Gold Line to the Heritage Square/Arroyo Station or Southwest Museum Station!).
Heritage Square is a living history museum dedicated to telling the story of the development of Los Angeles. At the museum, eight historic structures, saved from demolition and moved to the site, demonstrate why preservation in our communities is so important. The beautiful Victorian-era buildings provide a glimpse of Southern California as it looked 100 years ago.
