        1. I just discovered this a couple of years ago! This program needs a PR person 😉 ( I joke because I used to be a PR Person)

    1. How cool is that for people who live in big cities! I love free! Here in my small town in the northwoods most of the museums are free. We do have a wonderful children’s museum and I think they charge for that. I will have to check it out for when the grand kids get older.

    1. Thank you! I wonder if we know some of the same Dance People in NJ. I was on the Rutgers Dance Team in college, so i’m a dancing mom too!

  1. Looks like a lot of cool museums and activities. Many are doing virtual activities now too.

    1. yes! Liberty Science Center is offering amazing daily online activities. It’s one of our favorite places to go

  2. I really like the details of your experience. I would love this with family. Thank you! I’m on a Boat… LOL!

  3. Great suggestions and certainly now since funds are limited at times. This is a really interesting approach – wouldn’t have thought that so many of these would be free admission. Thanks for the information.

  4. Great resource! Some of those places are already on our radar for our next trip to NYC. Will pin for later!

  5. I’m inspired to check for free museum passes in my state. I didn’t know you could do this through the local library. Thanks for the tip!

  6. We do this every summer – our library (in NW Suburbs of Chicago) does something similar and so sad to be missing out on it this summer!

    1. Me too! I am hoping that in August the outdoor ones will be open and we can enjoy them again

  7. The Louisville library offers a Cultural Pass every summer where kids can get into local museums and attractions for free. Only one accompanying adult can get in with the kids. It works out well for us though because I just take the kids with me while my husband is at work.

  8. Great article! I was able to take advantage of museum passes when I lived in Scottsdale, Arizona. The library there also had this benefit available, and it’s free as well.

    1. I know right! The free days are always so crowded but with these passes you can still go for free – whenever it works with your schedule!

    1. I just learned about it a couple of years ago! We have really been enjoying the benefit of our local library

  9. This is great to know, thank you!! Those outdoor sculptures are so cool, and definitely an easy museum to do with kids.

    1. You’re welcome! The outdoor places are great with kids– don’t have to shhhh them the whole day!

    1. I did a happy dance when I read your comment. So happy that my tip worked for you!

  10. Shucks, I just checked Hawaii Public Libraries and we don’t have museum passes. I wonder if we can take advantage of museum passes as we travel, especially if we have friends in the area.

    1. Ah man!!! If your friends have a library card, they can check out of their local library!

  11. Wow I didn’t know this! What a great program. Don’t know if my library offers anything similar. I’ll be checking!

    1. Glad to have brought you something new! Come back and let me know if your library has them!
