“Free For All”


Have you ever been inside a real life spaceship, or seen the skeleton of a mammoth? Well, you can do these things and more as many Southern California museums open their doors to the public for free on January 30th and 31st.

An array of museums are providing entrance free of charge thanks to the

Peterson(R)“Museums Free For All” program which aims to insure that all children have the ability to access a high quality museum experience. This year will mark the eleventh anniversary of the program and with over thirty museums participating all over Southern California, there will surely be something for everyone to enjoy.

On the first day, you will be able to visit the Annenberg Space for Photography, where you can view photos by Frans Lanting, as he shows the progression of the earth through his exhibit “LIFE.” Or if you want to view something different, you can head on over to the Natural History Museum and gaze at the variety of bugs they have at their insect zoo. Are you a car enthusiast? Then head on over to the Petersen Automotive Museum to see a number of iconic and classic cars.

Then on January 31st, you can view a replica of Noah’s Ark at the Skirball Cultural Center. If you want to learn something new, then go to the Museum of Tolerance and learn how to confront prejudice and hatred in today’s modern world.

So if you have nothing to do at the end of this month, try to plan a trip to one of the participating museums. Wherever you choose to go, you won’t regret it since you will be sure to find something interesting at any of these great locations.

Just share it.
