Many frugal families are well-versed on FREE Days at museums and attractions across the city. Therefore, rather than posting each date 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. Frugal families are fortunate to live in a city with so many wonderful institutions to enjoy on the cheap.
