A family outing to a Chicago-area museum can really get pricey -- which is why you should take advantage of as many museum free days as you can.
Free days seem to be few and far between during the busy summer months, but you can still find them here and there. In fact, several popular Chicago-area museums are offering free days in early June -- a perfect outing to kick off summer once the kids are out of school.
Got your calendars ready? Okay, here are the museum free days for summer 2010 (at least these are the ones that I know about).
