Throughout the day, visitors of all ages are invited to enjoy free art-making activities at the Boone Children's Gallery and the roving Drawing Cart. Families can also join a scavenger hunt and pick up a free Dogs of LACMA sticker set and LACMA Loves Los Angeles art kit (while supplies last), and can sign up for NexGenLA, the museum's free membership for Los Angeles County youth under 17 and under.

LACMA is also located near other arts and culture institutions like the Academy Museum of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Craft Contemporary, and the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, which are taking part in the free-for-all, so you can explore them all. Get more info and reserve your free tickets to LACMA.
