The Santa Monica History Museum is excited to announce it will offer free admission on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2016 to the Santa Monica History Museum (normally $10). In honor of the Presidential Election, all visitors who show their “I voted” sticker will receive free admission to the museum.
The Santa Monica History Museum is currently offering a special exhibit on the history of the Old Soldiers’ Home – now known as the Veterans Affairs West Los Angeles Medical Center. The exhibit, The Old Soldiers’ Home: A Veterans’ Community by the Sea, details the history of the Old Soldiers’ Home, the ways in which it has changed over the years, and the veterans and nearby residents who helped build this community.
Photographs, documents, military uniforms, and other historical artifacts will bring the history of the Veterans Affairs facility to life. Objects for this exhibit come from the museum’s collections as well as from the private collection of the Bandini family. Free admission includes access to both the permanent and temporary exhibits.
