SoCal Museums Free-for-All January 29!

I have heard so many people say that their resolution or wish for the new year is to get out with the kids more. To do more with the kids is a great goal. Our favorite days, our most memorable days are spent as a family trying something new and getting out of the house. So here you go! Sunday, January 29th is known as Museums Free-for-All or Free Museum Day in and around LA. Below you can find a list of participating Museums.
