As a newbie to LA and an avid art lover (on a budget), I made it a mission to track down all the free museum days.
Luckily, I found an incredibly helpful chart that did all the work for me (thanks to NortonSimon.org). You’ll find a good variety of venues, small and large, that offer no-cost or discounted admission.

This recent round of heatwaves gave me the perfect incentive to spend quality time indoors. So far, I’ve been to the LACMA, the Paley Center, the Getty Center, and Huntington. And I can’t wait to see them all!
