Denver Free Days 2023

Denver Free Days for 2023

posted by:

Welcome to Denver Free Days in 2023! Enjoy free admission to some Denver’s most family-friendly attractions and museums including the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Denver Botanic Gardens and more. 

If you are new to Colorado you may not be aware that we have a special tax for Scientific Cultural and Facilities (SCFD). Because every Coloradoan that pays taxes helps fund these institutions, we are all given free access to them on specific free days during the year. And some are even free all the time!

Love Denver? Keep exploring with the Essential Denver: Discovery and Exploration Guide (many attractions are free!)  Also, scroll down to see our top picks for Denver’s best playgrounds, how to rent a Go-Pro and Colorado State Parks Pass for free and Denver’s best museums for kids. 

Free All the Time:

  • Aurora History Museum
  • Broomfield Veterans Museum
  • Children’s Museum of Denver  (free the first Tuesday of every month from 4 – 8 p.m.
  • Colorado Music Hall of Fame
  • Denver Art Museum (free general admission to all youth age 18 and under every day)
  • Foothills Art Center
  • Four Mile Historic Park (every third Sunday)
