Who doesn't love "free" -- especially when that intoxicating word accompanies "admission" to cool places that families love to visit?

That's what's happening on Saturday, Jan. 25, with the Southern California Museums Free-for-All, when 20 museums in L.A. and Orange County open their doors for free. (Keep in mind that it's general admission only and excludes parking and special exhibits.)

Feel free (there's that word again!) to check out the Picturing Mexico: Alfredo Ramos Martínez in California exhibit at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (pictured up top) or the Global Citizen exhibition at the Skirball Cultural Center (a photo from which is pictured below).

All for -- you guessed it -- free.
