CWW: Free and Cheap Summer Museum Admission

The Highland Street Foundation is once again sponsoring Free Fun Fridays at various museums around the state every Friday this summer.  For this Friday, July 1, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford, Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich, and the Edward Gorey House (why, yes, that is the sound of me squeeing) in Yarmouth Port, will all have free admission. 

I highly recommend putting your favorite museums (or ones you’d like to try) on the calendar based on the Free Fun Fridays schedule.  (And it’s not just museums!  For instance, there will be a free concert at Tanglewood on August 12, free Boston Harbor Islands ferry rides on August 19, free plays, etc.)

The Discovery Museums in Acton are free every Friday evening (4:30pm-8:30pm) this summer (through August 26).

The Boston Children’s Museum always has $1 admission on Friday evenings (5-9pm) via the Target Foundation.  (And the Institute of ContemporaryArt Boston is free on Thursday nights from 5-9pm as well!)

The Harvard Museum of Natural History will have half-price nights on July 27 and August 24 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM.  (Though you can also take a museum pass out of the library and get tickets slightly cheaper.)
