?? BUT, I called and was told that “if you can find a parking spot
and come up to the admission window, we will not turn you away.” ?? Update #2: Adriana called on 9/26 and they told her you will need a ticket to get in.
I would either have one or have a name of somebody to pull out, if needed. :( Sorry! (Thanks, Adriana!) The Desert Botanical Garden is celebrating it’s 75th anniversary by offering a free admission day to everyone. Saturday, September 28th 8 am – 8 pm You’ll also get in free to the special Mariposa Monaraca Monarch Butterfly Exhibit.
(say that 5 times fast)
You can get your free tickets here. You can find more details here.
Saturday, September 28th is National Museum Day. You and a guest can get free admission to many museums throughout the United States. You will need to register and print a ticket. Remember, it’s two people per ticket. It does say one per household or email address, so I’m not sure if that will be enforced at each museum or not. I guess you can call and see if you and your spouse could each use one and get two kids in. It doesn’t hurt to ask! Here’s a link to the list of participating Arizona locations.
