Thrifty Thursday: Free Admission on the 3rd Sunday to MN Children's Museum

This Sunday is FREE ADMISSION to the Minnesota Children's Museum. In fact, every month, the 3rd Sunday is free admission. You do still have to pay for parking if you need to park there, but you can get the discounted museum parking rate, so don't forget to bring your parking pass in to get stamped.

We have a museum membership (see pictures of a visit here) so we have not taken advantage of this special except when my daughter was about 6 months old (she's 7 1/2 now!), but if you are watching your budget but still trying to provide some fun experiences for your children, then this is a great day to go. Admission is normally $9.50/person for ages 1 and over.

Right now one of the visiting exhibits is "The Blue Man Group", but all of there permanent exhibits are pretty awesome! We love going there.

Oh man that's awesome! I'm so jealous. Our museum doesn't ever do free admission (that I know of), but I JUST bought a great discounted groupon for it yesterday. We've never gone with the whole family, so I know it will be so fun :)

Wow that's awesome! Children's museums are such great experiences that its well worth the $ but I know a lot of families just can't even consider it becuase of the cost so its so cool that they're doing this.

Thanks for the heads up! I wish I lived closer. LOL I do know The Children's Museum in Atlanta has free days every second Tuesday of the month. :D
