Money Saving Monday: Go to Museums for free!

Money Saving Monday-Fun Free Family Outings

Be sure and check back every Monday for money saving tips for your family

Just because you are living frugally does not mean you have to give up fun outings or dates with your spouse or kids. Often times locations offer cheap or free admission on certain days. Check the museums in your local area by calling the information or checking online to see which days you can get in for a special price and plan your excursions or dates around these freebies.

For the greater Seattle area here are some of my favorite outings:

The Tacoma Art Museum offers free admission the 3rd Thursday of every month

The Tacoma Museum of Glass offers free admission on the 3rd Thursday of every month

The Museum of flight is free from 5-9p on the 1st Thursday of each month.

Shoreline History Museum offers hands on days the 4th Saturday of each month where kids 4-12 can create free projects.

The Museum of history and industry in Seattle offers free admission the 1st Thursday of each month

The Burke Museum of natural history in Seattle offers free admission the 1st Thursday of each month

The Washington State History Museum offers free admission on Thursday evenings

Pierce County Library allows you to check out a art or play pass good for admission to four to the Tacoma Childrens museum or the Tacoma art museum.

If you have toddlers:

The Tacoma Childrens Museum offers free admission the first Friday of every month

Kidquest in Bellevue offers free admission on Fridays from 5-8pm

Call to set up a fire station or police station tour. Free and oh so fun with coloring books and of course up close views of awesome trucks and cars

And of course if you have somewhere that you just love look into buying, or asking for a Christmas or birthday gift a season pass. We’ve loved our Christmas passes of season passes to the zoo and children’s museum!

Your turn, what ideas do you have?
