Let's be honest: there are times when Angelenos wonder why they chose to live in this busy city. But with its exciting nightlife, beautiful places to explore outside, and, of course, its amazing art and culture scene, we are happy to give up a good chunk of our earnings to stay here for another month.
So it makes sense that you should take advantage of any of these things in the city that are free.
This brings us to 4 free museums and galleries in Los Angeles and how to get into them.
1. The Broad
The Broad collection is thought to be one of the best collections of postwar and contemporary art in the world. It is made up of 2,000 works of art that are all housed in this beautiful building. Popular artists like Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, and Takashi Murakami have their work on display. In fact, Murkami's solo show has 18 pieces from different times in his career.
General admission is free (except on Mondays, when the exhibition is closed), but you need to reserve a spot first.
2. California Science Center
The California Science Center is in Exposition Park, near the University of Southern California and the Natural History Museum. Their goal is to teach Angelenos about science and show them how important it is to our lives.
Their permanent exhibits, which include the space shuttle Endeavour, are free and do not necessitate a reservation.
3. Getty Center
Explore art from Venice from the 14th century to old furniture from the 18th century at this amazing white-tiled complex with beautiful gardens and views of the city. Make sure you don't miss Robert Irwin's Central Garden, which is 134,000 square feet and changes all the time.
The Getty Center is free and open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on Mondays, when it is closed.
4. Griffith Observatory
"Discover the universe for free" without departing Los Angeles at this famous cultural gem.
This beautiful Art Deco building has been used as the setting for dozens of classic movies. It also has interesting astronomy resources and strong telescopes. From Friday through Sunday, you can visit the museum and watch the sun set over the city from the grounds, which have great views.
What free museums would you add to the list?
