Admission to nearly 40 Southern California museums will be free Sunday as part of the 14th annual Museums Free-for-All event. Institutions across the region, from Santa Barbara to Palm Springs, are participating, offering visitors the change to scope out a wide range of art and historical artifacts, from pop art by Roy Lichtenstein to exhibits documenting the fight for civil rights.

There are some caveats. Museums participating in the Free-for-All event will offer free general admission, which doesn’t always include specially-ticketed exhibits. Some museums, such as the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades and Exposition Park’s Natural History Museum, are offering free, timed-entry tickets; others, including the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo and the Autry Museum in Griffith Park, are opening their doors in a free-for-all.

Museum entry might be free, but usual parking fees still apply. For those taking the bus, rail, or subway: Metro has teamed up with several institutions to offer discounts at museum stores and other perks for riders who present their TAP cards.
