The best things in life are free

I always figured that no place could compare with DC when it came to free admission to tons of interesting places--all of the Smithsonian Museums, the National Building Museum, all of the monuments, jazz in the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden...

Then I started paying attention here. You can always go to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts or the Weisman for free. Then there's the free Thursday night and first Saturday at the Walker. Of course there's Como Zoo and Conservatory. Then there is my most favorite thing of all, the Museum Adventure Pass that you can check out from any Metro area library.

You don't have to have kids to take advantage of this either. We're talking free admission for anywhere between 2-4 people to places like the Minnesota Zoo, the Walker, the Minnesota History Center, the Bell Museum of Natural History, and others. It's such a steal that you can use it, go to a place for 30 minutes, and not feel guilty. Thank you to all of the generous corporate sponsors out there and the venues who are opening themselves up to freeloaders like myself!
