After more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic forced Los Angeles County museums to temporarily shut their doors, our local institutions are ready for their comeback. However, visiting a museum will not be exactly as it was prior to the shutdown. All re-openings are taking place with new health and safety guidelines. It's a good idea to read through these guidelines when you plan your visit.
Note that some museums will be operating at a shorter schedule right now and that some exhibits might not currently be available to the public. However, many also have new shows making their debut with the re-openings. Some have also extended the runs of exhibitions that were closed due to the pandemic or opened virtually in 2020.
Since museums are re-opening with a limited capacity, even those that don't charge admission have timed-entry tickets available online. In many cases, these are required. At museums where advance tickets are recommended, you should take advantage of it, just in case they're sold out at the door.
