FREE Family Passes to SF Attractions
Finally, a compelling reason to have children. SF Kids‘ “Check Out San Francisco” program allows San Francisco families to get FREE passes to a long list of museums, aquariums, zoos, and a bunch of other places I didn’t even know were here. Like the Haas-Lilienthal House (what surly teenager wouldn’t enjoy a docent-led tour of San Francisco’s only Victorian house museum?) or the RocketBoat at Pier 39 (boasting a “30-minute thrilling high-speed adventure on the San Francisco Bay”).
If you’ve got some little booger-pickers of your own or you’re barely legal and still like to hang out with your folks, then you’re all set. I’m not sure how stringent they are about the term “family” or how morally questionable it would be to bend the rules of a philanthropic program. But depending on those factors, feel free to go next door, borrow some neighbor kids, and get your museum on.
Here’s how it works: go to any San Francisco Public Library, choose a participating attraction (there are 18 of them!), use your library card to check out a Family Pass, and get FREE entrance for one or two adults accompanied by up to four children (good thing the Octomom doesn’t live here'or many Mormons), which could save you upwards of $100. I’ve heard the passes are quite popular so get on it before everyone finds out.
