Free Museum Day - Museums of the Arroyo Seco (Pasadena & Los Angeles)

Here is a great Free Sunday Outing for the family if you happen to live in the Los Angeles area. Museums of the Arroyo (MOTA) Day is on Sunday, May 18th, 2008 from 11:00 Am to 5:00 pm.

There are six unique history-based museums that preserve and perpetuate early Los Angeles life that make up this group of museums. All of them will be open to the public for no charge on that day. There will also be free and continuous shuttle service running between the museums. Visitors can park their cars once and then shuttle to the museums of their choice.

MOTA museum members include: The Gamble House, Heritage Square Museum, The Los Angeles Police Historical Museum, The Lummis Home and Garden, The Pasadena Museum of History and The Southwest Museum of the American Indian. Click on each name above to get more information on that museum.

For overall information about MOTA day, click here or call the MOTA hotline at 213-740-TOUR (8687)

I've already marked my calendar and told the family that we are going. I love hands-on history. Maybe we'll see you there.

I heard they have an amazing handcuff collection at the Los Angeles Police Historical Museum. I may have to check that out!
