Visit Museums & Galleries in Austin for Free


From historical homes to indoor and outdoor galleries, Austin has an eclectic mix of museums. If you time it right, you can visit most of them for free!

Always free:

Free at certain times:
The Blue Star Museums program offers free museum admission to military personnel, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. 

Bank of America customers can visit the Thinkery and the Contemporary Austin for free on the first full weekend of every month (one free ticket per cardholder), through the Museums on Us program.

For a more comprehensive list of local museums, visit the Austin Museum Partnership website, but note that not all of the museums listed are free. Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 21, 2014, the next Austin Museum Day, when you can visit more than 40 local institutions at no charge!
