In the LA area, 2012 participating museums include:

American Museum of Ceramic Art, Pomona

If you're otherwise occupied on September 29th, some great LA museums are free all the time, and most Los Angeles Museums are free to the public one or more days per month. To find out which museums are free on which days, check out the guide to Museum Free Days. If you don't see a museum on this list, they probably don't have a free day. Free admission to the listed museums usually excludes traveling exhibits.
