FREE Spring Museum Days

Since moving to Chicago, have you had the chance to visit every museum? Chances are no. Ticket prices can get kind of pricey, especially when you have to choose between buying groceries for the week or going to see some animals and some art. Charging $26.96 for a Shedd Aquarium ticket is just not right, especially when you living on a college student's budget. 

Well you are in luck! 

The museums finally realized that they need to cut us, college students, some slack! They are not just giving us a "student" discount, but they are letting us in for FREE. The Spring free museum days are finally out! Here are the days and times that each museum is free. Go get cultured and educated about something other than Chicago's bar scene. Here is one of your few chances that you will get to do it for free!
