Spring is here! And April is the perfect time to spring into action for lots of family-friendly fun, thanks to the city’s FREE Days.
As always, there’s so much to explore and experience in Denver on the cheap, thanks to our city’s generous FREE Days at museums and attractions. Because of their popularity, be prepared for large crowds and allow extra time to find parking. Consider carpooling or taking public transportation.
Frugal families looking for low-cost adventures in the Mile High City should start with this month’s FREE Days:

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. We’re so fortunate to live in a city with so many wonderful institutions to enjoy on the cheap.
