Autry Museum in Griffith Park: Free Admission!

Panning for Gold at the Autry Museum.
The Autry Museum offers free admission on
 New Year's Day
2nd Tuesday of the Month

If you have an interest in American history, cowboys, or old western movies, the Autry museum is a must see! The Autry has lots of hands on exhibits and viewing stations of clips from old movies and historical films. The museum can be easily toured in 1-2 hours, unless you get caught up watching every movie clip, then before you know it you've stayed all day.

 There is a great section just for kids in the lower level. They've created a turn of the century house and restaurant complete with costumes for kids to role play. I spent well over an hour watching my kids have fun pretending they were cooking while the other adults in my group toured the galleries.

If you can't make it to the Autry on one of the free holidays, know that every 2nd Tuesday of the month is free admission day as well.

The Autry, located across the street from the L.A. Zoo, is open 10am -5pm, and offers free parking.

Winter Break Kick-Off: City of Montebello

The city held a similar Halloween event in October and it was a big hit with families! It was a very safe event for little kids because everything was enclosed. Many activities are free, but bring a few dollars to splurge on the vendors, and extra activities. Pictures with Santa are $2.
