L.A. Museum Season Returns Oct. 5-Nov. 15 with Two Complimentary Adult Admissions or Store Discounts at 25 of Los Angeles' World-class Cultural Attractions

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 22, 2015) – This October through November, visitors who book a minimum of two nights at a Los Angeles hotel can save more than $450 in admission fees or gift shop discounts at 25 of L.A.’s top museums during L.A. Museum Season, sponsored by the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board and the city’s leading museums.

To take advantage of this deal, visitors must book two or more nights on Hotels.com to receive a special voucher good for two complimentary adult admissions or gift store discounts at participating museums.

“This is the perfect time for visitors to explore L.A.’s outstanding art, history and science museums,” said Michael McDowell, Vice President for Cultural Tourism at the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. “L.A. is home to more museums than any other U.S. city, and L.A. Museum Season’s spectacular savings offer visitors an ideal opportunity to explore what’s new at their favorite L.A. museums or discover museums they have never been to.”

Highlights of museum savings and exhibition highlights include:

  • Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens (A savings of $46 on two regular adult admissions) – Home to more than a dozen expansive, themed gardens, the Huntington boasts the largest collection of British portrait-paintings outside of the United Kingdom—including the world famous Blue Boy by Gainsborough—as well as library treasures such as the earliest known manuscript of Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales and one of only 14 known copies of The Guttenberg Bible, the world’s first printed book. Guests can also visit the new Education and Visitor Center that includes an orientation gallery and 6.5 acres of new gardens.
  • Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens (A savings of $40 on two regular adult admissions) – Visitors can view more than 1,100 animals, many of them endangered, among immersive habitats and lush gardens that are reminiscent of natural environments in Asia, South America, Africa and beyond.
