The Chabot Space & Science Center has free admission on Saturday. Normally general admission costs $9/kid and $13/adult, but not today!
As part of Museum Day 2008, you need to fill out this form and print out admission cards. Each card is good for two people, and must be presented at the box office. Please note this offer isn’t mentioned on the Chabot web site, but is available here.
Of course, a trip to Chabot Space & Science is never completely free. Additional planetarium shows run $4/kid and $5/adult. Plus there’s the gift shop, which is tough to leave empty-handed.
It’s a beautiful day but why not go indoors and contemplate the universe? You can take a quick walk at Redwood Park, right outside. Or wait until sunset, and use the cool telescopes.
The Chabot Observatory is opened from 10:00am to 10:00pm Saturday. It’s easily reached off Highway 13, at 10000 Skyline Boulevard (map). If you have questions, please call the box office at (510) 336-7373.
More Museum Day Locales: The Berkeley Art Center and San Francisco’s Exploratorium are free today, too. Sign up for admission cards, also on the Smithsonian Magazine web site.
