Museum Free Days 2011
Many of Chicago’s acclaimed cultural institutions, historic sites and museums have numerous ‘free days’ designated throughout the
year.

To encourage all to discover their unique and special attractions, museums throughout the city waive their general admittance fee on
varying days of the week. Note: Though they may not charge a general admittance fee, some museums may charge a fee to view
special exhibits.

Museum Free Day dates are subject to change without notice, based upon individual museums' schedules. More dates later in the
year will be posted as they become available.
