The Children’s Museum in Missoula offers a ton of free admission days throughout the year. They have a whole “free admission series” they’re doing. And good thing, too. I’ve noticed that whenever they offer free admission, the place is packed.

My kids prefer to have the place to themselves, and I’m happy to pay the $4.25-per-person price of admission during off hours, especially during inclement weather. For less than the price of a matinee, we get hours and hours of indoor fun.

Here’s the scoop on the next free day:

Come learn and play for free at the Children’s Museum Missoula on Saturday, January 4, 2014. Kiddos and families can enjoy free admission from 10am-5pm thanks to the generous support of ZillaState. This is part of an ongoing free admission series offered by the Children’s Museum in 2014.

The Children’s Museum Missoula invites businesses and organizations of all sizes and industries to help inspire generations of wonder and creativity and support family education. Contributions from businesses help make the Children’s Museum exhibits and parenting programs possible. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities please contact Heidi Kendall at 406.541.7529 or
