A handful of great museums and other cultural attractions take part in the event, and offer admission specials (such as FREE entry; Buy 1 Get 1 Free; Up to 50% off…), free gifts, or discounts at their stores.

Discover the Arts is happening now, and goes through April 30th, 2011. The Skirball Cultural Center (Noah’s Ark inside is awesome!), the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Natural History Museum of L.A., and many others are participating. Here’s a link to more info, including a list of those taking part, and the discounts they offer. Click on the link regarding the discount, print the offer, and take it to the admission booth of the attraction you’d like to visit. What a deal!
