Free Museum Tickets

Many of you have found this web site by looking for free tickets to the Minnesota Zoo. Well this is the place to learn how to do many free things around the Twin Cities for free, including museums and the MN ZOO. Just think of them as really great coupons to go where you want to go!

You can go to this web site to check out all the details, but you can get free tickets to the following places in the Twin Cities, Minnesota:

Admit 4 people:

American Swedish Institute
Bell Museum of Natural History
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Minnesota Museum of American Art
The Landing - Minnesota River Heritage Park (formerly Historic Murphy's Landing)
The Museum of Russian Art
Weisman Art Museum

Admit 2 people:

Bakken Museum
Hennepin History Museum
Historic Fort Snelling
Minnesota History Center
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
Minnesota Zoo
Sirens, Signals and Whistles Pass
Firefighters Hall & Museum
Minnesota Transportation Museum
Twin City Model Railroad Museum
The Works: A Technology Discovery Center
TRACES Museum Center for History and Culture
Walker Art Center

Now you ask, how do I get these free passes to these great places? Simple, go to your local library.

Anoka County
Carver County
Dakota County
Hennepin County
Minneapolis Public
Ramsey County
Scott County
St. Paul Public
Washington County

They all offer these free passes as long as you have a current library card with them. Just find the station with all the passes, pick where you want to go, and bring the card to the check out desk. It is just that simple. They will give you a receipt that tells the museum or zoo that you have "checked out" the pass. You have one week to use the pass in before it becomes invalid. So plan accordingly.

Now get to the library and figure out where you are going to explore this week!
