This free-for-all includes The Broad, LACMA, MoCA, and — luckily for those of us in the Santa Barbara area — the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

If that Saturday won’t work, here’s a list of the free days many LA museums offer each month.

LA museums embracing digital innovations

Culture Monster highlights innovative examples of how various museums in Los Angeles are using digital technology:

  • Natural History Museum of Los Angeles: Interactive CT scans offer another way to access mummies
  • Autry National Center: In the exhibition space, first-person stories of characters features in the “Civil War” exhibit play as films from user-activated “daguerreotypes” (and, not mentioned in the article but on the website, playlists offer evocative music from the era)
  • GETTY-inspiredGetty Museum: Pushed for global open collection content and a #GettyInspired digital initiative to encourage interactivity with museum visitors
  • LACMA: Their new location-aware app is less straight didactic information and more conversational, so views spend more time with the art than their devices
  • The Huntington: Seven iPads are installed in strategic spots around the galleries to offer contextual information in the historic rooms
  • The Broad mobile appThe Broad: The new museum’s app has Bluetooth technology to be location-aware both outside and inside the museum, and will send a push notification with invitations and contextually aware information
  • MOCA: Eschewing “distracting” in-museum apps, the museum’s updated website seeks to engage viewers before and after visits

Check out a special Museums section in the New York Times for highlights on how New York museums use technology to engage visitors.
