**********Some local libraries have free passes to several local museums, including the Butterfly Pavilion, History Colorado and others. Check with your local library to see if they offer a culture, exploration or museum pass. Also, if you have a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card, you get free admission at museums across the country on the first weekend of each month. In Colorado, the offer is valid at the Denver Zoo and the Denver Art Museum. However, the Denver Art Museum is Sunday only, because they already offer free admission to everyone on the first Saturday of the month. This list does change, so check the "Museums on Us" website, before you go.**********
