Tickets are available to download by visiting www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday. You can search for one of 15 museums in California, including the USC Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena, the Latino art Museum in Pomona, Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge, and Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles.

Other museums and cultural institutions offering free Museum Day admission are the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles; California African American Museum in L.A., Los Angeles Maritime Museum in San Pedro, and museums in Carson, Santa Ana, Riverside and Laguna Beach.
