MOTA Madness

May 8, 2011

This Sunday we’re welcoming back the popular Museums of the Arroyo Day, where five museums located along the Arroyo Seco in Los Angeles and Pasadena open their doors free of charge. MOTA Day, as it is known in some circles, showcases five history-based museums that preserve and perpetuate the diverse mix of art, architecture and history of the Arroyo Seco and early Los Angeles life. Visitors are welcome to explore just one or all of the institutions. Participating this year are the Gamble House, Heritage Square Museum, the Los Angeles Police Historical Museum, Lummis Home and Gardens, and Pasadena Museum of History. Each location will be full of activities and tours.

Admission to all museums is free for the day, but plan to start early; this is a popular event. This year’s MOTA Day theme is “Hats,” and guests are encouraged to wear crazy, fashionable and/or sporty hats as they tour the five museums. Additional parking has been added, and you can easily use the Gold Line to go from venue to venue. Click here for parking and travel information.
