Free Days!

Free Days!

Being that I am a poor college student I prefer to do everything at little to no cost. Due to my economic status, I have become very good at LEGALLY spending little to no money on basically everything in Chicago. From food discounts to just knowing where and when to go places, I have learned it all. Oh, although I am not the biggest fan of Apple’s products, there is totally an app, FREEvents Chicago, for finding cheap things to do in the city.

Here are the free days for all of the best Museums in Chicago:

Museum of Science and Industry

Shedd Aquarium

Adler Planetarium

Field Museum

Art Institute

The Field

The Field

So this wasn’t necessarily a break from studying, because I haven’t officially started, but this morning was well spent at the Field Museum.  My friend, who has a membership, can bring along a free guest and we got to check out the newest exhibit: Chocolate Around the World.  We even got a delicious sample to enjoy while wandering about.

You don’t have to know a member to score a free trip.  The museums around Chicago offer several free or discount days, which you can easily find here!

Here are some pics from today’s visit. It was even decked out for the holidays!

Giant box of chocolates!
