Yes, you read that correctly. Free admission. You will now have the opportunity to experience the city, without even pulling out your wallet.

Here is a list of the city’s attractions that are… free.

Gardiner Museum

The Gardiner Museum is offering free admission every weekend, all summer long.

“We don’t want financial strain or a lack of available childcare options to prevent our publics from taking advantage of what we have to offer. We feel that it’s our responsibility to give back during this time to the communities that have supported and sustained us,” said Kelvin Browne, Executive Director and CEO.

Go visit their permanent collection of pottery, porcelain and contemporary ceramics this weekend.
