Mars Family Day Free NM Museum of Natural History & Science
Free admission days for New Mexico residents at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science? We like that!
New Mexico residents get in free to The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science on the first Sunday of every month. So the next free admission day is this Sunday August 5, 2012.
It’s also Mars Family Day at the museum between noon and 3 pm, celebrating the planet Mars and the landing of the rover Curiosity with hands-on activities for kids and the family, a talk on Mars and the rovers Opportunity and Curiosity by Dr. Larry Crumpler from the MER rover team, and telescope viewing.
The free admission day saves $7 per adult (aged 13-59) and $4 for kids (aged 3-12) on the usual ticket price.
To get free admission on the first Sunday of the month, take your New Mexico ID. Even with the freebie, you have to pay regular admission if you want to go in to the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater or the Planetarium.
New Mexico resident seniors age 60+ also continue to get free admission every Wednesday to the NM Museum of Natural History and Science.
New Mexico Museum of Natural and Science is located in Albuquerque Old Town at 1801 Mountain Road NW.
