Yesterday, Stuart tipped you off to free museum admission on the first Tuesday of the month, but we all know that sometimes it’s really hard to impress people by acting like a grown up at an art museum. Lucky for you, you can take your 8-year-old self to a couple kid-friendly destinations for FREE today, and the first Wednesday of every month. Your choices include:

Exploratorium – hands on science fun!

SF Zoo – they let you get really close to the tigers!

Aquarium of the Bay – actually has free admission to SF Residents all this week (until Thursday 1/7).

Also, given the recent passing of the man responsible for making Pez dispensers a collectors item instead of just something you throw away two days after Easter, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that the Pez Museum in Burlingame also has free admission on the first Thursday of every month. (That’s tomorrow, 1/7.)

Bonus points if you babysit someone else’s 8-year-old and get paid to bring them to one of these places.
