Free Museum Days Admission for Chicago Public School Students


Free museum days for Chicago's students!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Museums in the Park president Gary Johnson announced free admission for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) students to the city's top cultural institutions next week - 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.
