Spring has officially sprung, and it's time to get out of the house, away from your computer, and experience one of the many cultural institutions that grace Southern California. Even better: if you go on So Cal Free-For-All Day, Saturday, March 23, you'll pay nothing and learn something. The no-cost admuseums represent art, cultural heritage, film, natural history, and science.

Others are focused on industries, lifestyles, organizations, and professions, which will give you a better idea of how your ancestors lived or what they might have experienced.

The museums participating in the 2024 Free-For-All include:
