The holidays are here and there’s so much to celebrate in the Mile High City! (There are not as many FREE Days in December because of all the holiday festivities scheduled.)
As always, there’s so much to explore and experience in Denver, thanks to all of our city’s wonderful museums and attractions.
Be prepared for large crowds and allow time to find parking. You might even consider making it a full day of exploration by taking public transportation.
Frugal families looking for low-cost adventures in the Mile High City can start with this month’s FREE Days:
December 1 – Denver Art Museum
December 4 – Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus (from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.)
December 9 – Denver Museum of Nature & Science
December 14 – Four Mile Historic Park (from noon to 4 p.m.)
December 28 – Clyfford Still Museum (also, FREE every Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.)
Check out our events calendar 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 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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 planning.
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 for parking.) Click here to review our page.
