Discover Los Angeles, the city's tourism agency, is offering a cultural package that it's calling LA Museum Season. Visitors and locals who make a hotel reservation for at least two nights will receive free admission to more than 25 museums in Southern California.
The deal: The package requires a two night minimum and must be booked via Discover Los Angeles. Hotels in the deal range from Motel 6 to the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills. Locals can plan a weekend escape and pick up vouchers for two tickets to each museum, including the Huntington Library (usually $20 per person), USS Iowa (usually $18 per person) and many more. Check out the list of museums here.
When: The offer is good for hotel stays from Oct. 7 through Nov. 12
Tested: I looked for availability on Oct. 18 to 20 and found prices of $175 a night at the Sheraton Universal near Universal Studios and CityWalk, $100 a night at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport and $225 a night at the Standard in downtown L.A. (Prices don't include tax.) Aside from free admissions, the offer includes discounts at some museum gift shops too.
