I was talking to a few friends about my trip to New York, and I’d mentioned how great it was that the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) was a pay-as-you-wish museum, when she, an Upstate native herself gave me her ‘whaaaaa?’ face. If you’re giving your screen the ‘whaaaaaa?’ face, allow me to clarify – there are a lot of museums world over that are essentially free or pay-as-you-wish.
What are ‘pay-as-you-wish’ museums?
Museums that do not require an entry fee for general admission, but accept donations wherever possible. Typically, this only applies for viewing the museum’s own collection, and seasonal exhibits have a separate fee. If ever in doubt, or if a museum is not listed as ‘pay-as-you-wish’, give them a call and ask when their free admittance days are.
Here are a list of a few free museums around the world to get you started:
Word to the wise: Don’t cheap out, always donate. It’s free because someone before you made a donation to help with upkeep- pay it forward.
