Free Museums or $11,000 Flight

Have you been putting off going to museums because admission prices would put a dent in your budget? For two days, October 3 & 4th, twenty-two Los Angeles area museums are offering free entries! Every museum in the promotion, from the famous Getty and the California Science Center, to the lesser known Skirball Center and the Hammer at UCLA, is participating for at least one of the days (but you may still want to bring some cash for some exhibits that require entrance fees, and to pay for parking).

If you’ve got about $11,000 to spend, you and a friend can experience zero gravity flight, a 2 night stay at the Wynn in Las Vegas (with an upgrade to a Tower Suite room), and a spa treatment. The weightless flight is about 2 hours long aboard G FORCE ONE, ZERO-G’s specially modified Boeing 727-200 aircraft. Zero-G is the first and only company to offer FAA approved weightless commercial flights, so this could be considered the ultimate flight experience short of a rocket flight.

Experiences are the currency of life, spend yours wisely.


  1. Is there somewhere I can find a list of participating museums? Have already taken my cubscouts to The Getty, The Skirball, Peterson's and Museum of Tolerance - could use some fresh ideas!

    myself and my lovable little gaggle of ADHD demon spawn thank you!

  2. Hi JAG, just click on the Museum link in my post, it will take you to the list of museums that are participating.
