At times, when things are free they end up being more enjoyable. In my opinion, when something is free the expectations are lowered. Less expectations can make for a more enjoyable time since you might not have to make sure to get full value, so to speak.
My guess is that the majority of you reading BoardingArea enjoy finding ways to save money while traveling. Maybe you’re looking for ways to maximize the value of your airline miles or hotel points and/ or find out the best way to manufacture spend to build up lots of miles economically. These are ways we can save on our travels in the long run.
How do you save money while away on your trips?
One good way to save would be to take part in free activities.
Thrillist took a look at the The World’s 16 Best Free Museums which I found pretty interesting to read.
When I saw the title of this article, the first museums which came to mind were the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC.
All of the museums and zoos there are free which is pretty amazing if you ask me! One of my favorites is The National Museum of the American Indian. I’d highly recommend visiting next time you find yourself in the U.S. capital!
Here are the museums that made Thrillist’s list:
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art- NYC
- British Museum- London, UK
- Getty Center- Los Angeles, CA
- The Louvre- Paris, France
- The National Museum of China- Beijing
- National Air & Space Museum- Washington, DC
- Coventry Transport Museum- Coventry, UK
- Nicholson Museum- Sydney, Australia
- Tate Modern- London, UK
- Daimler Contemporary- Berlin, Germany
- The Museum of Natural History- NYC
- Vatican Museums- Vatican City
- USS Constitution & Museum- Boston, MA
- National Football Museum- Manchester , UK
- Museu Afro Brasil- Sao Paulo, Brazil
- Rothko Chapel- Houston, TX
The list of free museums is a pretty impressive one made up of places around the world. I’ve visited half of the museums mentioned which I’ve made bold to show. From the eight museums that I’ve visited I really enjoyed all of them except the Tate Modern although my visit was many years back. I also can’t say that I really remember what my visit to The Met was like…
