Free Museum Days For Chicago’s Students!

Next week Chicago Public Schools (CPS) students will recieve free admission to the city’s top cultural institutions— just in time for them to brush up on learning and culture before school starts on September 6th!

Ten of the city’s top cultural institutions are supporting CPS students as they prepare to return for a new school year with free general admission to the museum sites on select days beginning Sunday, August 28th through Saturday, September 3rd.

All CPS students will be eligible for free general admission with proof of student ID OR a copy of their spring 2016 school report card. This will also grant students free admission for one adult to accompany them, with some sites providing free entrance for the entire family.
