I haven’t taken my kids to the Natural History Museum since it moved to the $103 million dollar Rio Tinto Center. I want to take them this summer–especially if I can do it for FREE. The Natural History Museum FREE DAY is offered once each quarter. The next scheduled freebie is July 15th. Here’s the inside scoop on this great deal:
- Make a reservation ONLINE the Tuesday before the scheduled free day. This means July 9th. You’ve got to be quick about it. Reservations are gone in about 2 hours.
- If you miss the reservation, the museum does hold out some tickets for walk-ins. The worst time to arrive for walk-in tickets is 10:00 a.m. The best time to arrive is later in the day, sometime before 3:00 p.m.
If the Natural History Museum free day sounds too complicated and you’d rather just pay for your tickets, you can find a $1.00 off coupons here on the Foothill Cultural District site. This site, by the way, is a real find. Bookmark it for all kinds of hard to find museum and admission ticket coupons for places such as Red Butte Gardens, Utah Museum of Fine Arts and This is the Place Park.
