    Awesome, Thank you! I have been looking for something like this. We homeschool our children and we are always looking for places to take the kids to as “field trips” for learning experiences. Sometimes it’s hard to do if we are on a tight budget!

      If you homeschool, you may also want to check out the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. They’re having some discounted evening hours, and they have something coming up for homeschool parents. Membership is also a great idea. It seems a little pricey at first, but it pays for itself after a few visits.

        I have seen it on the internet and it definitely looks amazing, I would pay a visit once I go to LA soon, thank you for sharing.

    I know that I am late to the party here, but it is still pretty cool to hear about, I hope that people got out there and enjoyed the freebies. Our local museum here has a free exhibit every year that I try to make it to, and it always impresses, and they are in general a great way to learn and just a good cultural way to get out.

      That’s great. I currently live in a country where museums and arts are not highly valuated as they should be, but free museum days stil exist and several people attend to them, of course.

    Going to LA always seemed like a cool vacation. Like most Americans, Iv’e seen plenty of movies which showcase LA’s culture. Unfortunately, my only trip to LA was a stop at an airport to change planes.

    It’s funny that when your in Northeast Asia the locals often assume your from California or LA, if you say your American.

    I really love to visit the museum. It is a better way to consume your time in a positive way. We can gain a lot of knowledge about history and other ancient times too. I have plans to visit these museums for free. Nothing is better than free entertainment. Can you inform me about the specific locations and dates for this free offer?

    Los Angeles has some of the best museums due to the amount of diversity in the area. I would definitely take the trip to visit if they hold another promotion this year.
