There’s no better way to start the new year than being fiscally responsible. Frugal families looking for low-cost adventures in the Mile High City can start with this month’s FREE Days: Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus (January 3; 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.), Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms (January 3), Denver Art Museum (January 7), Denver Zoo (January 12, 20 and 21), Four Mile Historic Park (January 13; noon to 4 p.m.), Denver Botanic Gardens (January 16), Denver Museum of Nature & Science (January 22) and Clyfford Still Museum (January 27; admission is FREE every Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) Check out our events calendar and click on “View Events By Month” for easy planning.
Plus, don’t forget the Federal Reserve Bank’s The Money Museum (on the 16th Street Mall) is FREE every day — open Monday through Friday.
We know frugal families are well-versed on FREE Days at museums and attractions across the city. Therefore, rather than posting each one individually, we created a comprehensive list of all the FREE days for easy one-stop “shopping.”
Most of the free days are funded, in part, by taxes collected through the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. Others are funded by corporate sponsorship. We’re so lucky to live in a city with so many wonderful institutions to enjoy “on the cheap.”
However, it’s important to note that the FREE Days are extremely popular. (Translation: Be prepared to deal with large crowds and allow extra time to search for parking.) Click here to review our page.
