Some museums offer really good deals on certain days of the week that would otherwise be really slow. It’s a great opportunity to pack a lunch and take the kiddos downtown for a free outing (well, ok you’ve still got to pay for parking!! If anyone knows a good deal on that, lemme know!) Here are some fun ways to entertain your kids:
Brookfield Zoo is free Tuesdays and Thursdays from now until the end of 2008. Go here for more info.
Adler Planetarium is free Mondays and Tuesdays all through November. Go here for more info.
The Shedd Aquarium is free Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in November. Check it out here.
The Field Museum is free on the second Monday of each month as you can see here.
