Free First Saturdays

General admission is free on the first Saturday of the month thanks to Your 6 Hometown Toyota Stores and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).

Explore fun things for families (including bilingual programs for the whole family), visit exhibitions throughout the museum, hear storytelling, and more!

General admission does not include special ticketed exhibitions. A separate ticket is required for Her Paris: Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism (October 22, 2017-January 14, 2018).

Please Note: Free general admission also will be offered on Sunday, November 19, to celebrate the North Building and say "See You Later" before it closes for renovations. LEARN MORE >>
