Does anyone have a list of museums in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area that are free for teachers?
I'm attending a teaching conference in Los Angeles during the last week of July. My colleagues and I were interested in visiting some of the local museums that offer free admission to educators. I know that the La Brea Tar Pits and the Natural History Museum both offer free admission to educators. Are there any others?
