This weekend's rainy weather is cooperating with at least one event occurring across Southern California -- the eighth annual "Museums Free For All."
The event offer free admission either today, Sunday, or both days at 20 art galleries, cultural centers and museums from Long Beach to Pasadena to the Westside of Los Angeles.
Museums that are open for free both days include the Annenberg Space for Photography, the Autry, California African American, California Science Center, Fowler at UCLA, Hammer, Getty Center, and Getty Villa.
Also open for free both days are the Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Latin American Art, the Paley Center for Media, Skirball Cultural Center and the Long Beach State University Art Museum.
Free admission will be offered today only at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.
And free admission will be offered Sunday only at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Tolerance, the Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
Some museums will charge admission to special shows, or for parking, and some require advance reservations. Exact information about that, and operating hours, is available at www/museumsla.org .
