Summer may be over, but there’s lots of fall fun to be had around town. Frugal families looking for low-cost adventures in the Mile High City can start with this month’s FREE Days: Denver Art Museum (September 2 and 9), Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus (September 5; 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.), Four Mile Historic Park (September 8; noon to 4 p.m.), Denver Museum of Nature & Science (September 17) and Clyfford Still Museum (September 29; admission is also FREE every Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) Check out our events calendar and click on “View Events By Month” for quick and 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.
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.
