Here’s the complete schedule for Free Fun Fridays 2018

Free Fun Fridays 2018 schedule

Free Fun Fridays are back to brighten up your summer.

The Highland Street Foundation has announced the full schedule for this year’s installment of the program, which offers free admission to dozens of museums and cultural institutions around Massachussets on select Fridays throughout the season. The list of participating venues has expanded by quite a bit since Free Fun Fridays started in 2009, as 100 spots around the Bay State have joined the festivities for 2018.

A few highlights from this year’s schedule include free admission to the Museum of Fine Arts on July 20, the Arnold Arboretum on July 27 and the Franklin Park Zoo on Aug. 3.

Check out the full Free Fun Fridays 2018 schedule below.
