Free Museum Admission

The pilot is home this week so I took a day off work to spend some quality time with him and visit the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago.  It has been on our to-do list for awhile now since our last trip there together was over 10 years ago. 

The top two reasons why we have not visited in over 10 years:
  1. Whenever we think about going we then realize that all of the schools are off on that day.  That means that there will be hordes of parents trekking along their children for a fun (extremely crowded) day at the museum.  I'll take a rain check.
  2. The exhibits we want to see the most are too much money in addition to the overly priced $30 regular admission.  Do you know how much clearance fabric I can buy for that?
Well you can imagine the overwhelming excitement I felt when the pilot shared the news that the day we wanted to go was an "Illinois Free Day" and a weekday when school is in session!!!!  Yes and yes!

Did you know that all of the Chicago museums have days when the admission is free?!  Luckily they publish the dates in advance so started planning your year now.

Here are links to find out the 2012 free / discount dates for some of my favorite Chicago museums:
Of course we had to check out their airplane exhibit!
