Museum days where you pay are good. After all, you pay what -- $5, $10, $15 dollars, depending on the admission of the place? -- and then you get like eight hours of wandering around and looking and soaking-in of ideas and art and people watching. Nothing to sniff at. It is often a very good value, especially if you have the time to put in and enjoy.
But the museum free day is something very special indeed. And free times, especially when they're coming every 24 hours, deserve notice. Los Angeles County Museum of Art is free every single day after 5PM (although you may pay what you wish, and donations are always nice), and now that it is June, and now that the sky is still aglow-ish through 8 or so, it is worth mentioning. Or reminding, as it is something a lot of us know but maybe do not jump into as often as we should.
A quick, 7PM-ish visit to the museum in recent days proved very satisfying for us. Not too crowded, nice nighttime temps, and free. Free free free. You'll need to swing by the ticket window to pick up a ticket, but then that is it. Roam away, and keep your cashola stowed. Thank you, LACMA.
