Everything you need when planing a vacation trip to San Francisco
The free day line at the Academy of Sciences



Many of San Francisco's museums have free admission to their galleries one day a month. However, as good as that is, it can come at the cost of long lines and crowded exhibits. The above photo taken on a free day at the California Academy of Sciences shows only about a fifth of the line.


Below is a list of the institutions that offer free days. Their usual adult admission price is given so you can judge the savings.


There are two popular discount admission passes in San Francisco, CityPASS and Go Cards. The logos below indicate whether or not the institution participates with either program. No point in wasting a free day on a museum for which you already have a paid pass.
