Squeaky clean fun at a museum(1)

Live in an expensive city?

Check out how Hip2Save reader Janice had some squeaky clean fun by taking advantage of free or discounted museum offers in her expensive city. So fun!

We have moved to a very expensive area – in southern Maryland which is close to Washington, D.C., but there is an upside to this. There are so many inexpensive or free museums to see and visit, including the many Smithsonian museums. We try to go to these as often as possible.

Frugal fun entertainment at museums

This was our first time to the National Building Museum where they were having a futuristic house exhibit (which was not free but we did get a military discount as my husband is a veteran). We had some squeaky clean fun! Bubble bath anyone? 🛁 I am sure many of your other readers have places in their hometowns or festivals/activities nearby that are free or inexpensive to visit/do as well.”

Gotta love free or cheap entertainment! Check out this post for more ideas!

    Love DC for their free museums! And I do enjoy and appreciate a military discount that includes veterans.
    That ball pit looks fun and reminds me of Chuck E. Cheese and when toysrus had the jungle play place. Yup I’m old 🤣

    It may look like a bath, but it’s definitely the opposite of squeaky clean 😧🤣

    I work in a museum, so I love this post!

    Smithsonian Free Museum Day is every September where lots of museums all over the country open their doors for free for the day, something to keep in mind. Website hasn’t been updated for this year yet, but watch as it get closer for participants https://www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/museum-day-2018/

    If you receive snap benefits you can also get into a lot of museums free or reduced price https://museums4all.org/

    Finally, check with your local library, sometimes you can check out museum passes, especially in big cities! If they don’t offer this, suggest it!

    Our local CT library has free passes and discount offers to several museums in CT and even MA and RI. I was just there today and was surprised at how many FREE passes they have.

    Looks fun. Glad you can enjoy your new home.

    If you own a Bank of America debt or credit card you can get free admission the first weekend of every month to various museums all over the country. Free admission for the card holder only.

    Target also sponsors free admission at some museums one day per quarter or per month.

      You can go to Museums on Us for a list by state and city to see which museums be are included in the Bank of America program.

  7. Sara

    If you have a 10 year old, visit everykidinapark.com and you can get free admission to hundreds of parks and some museums for one year.
