Discovery Center of Idaho: FREE Admission Fridays!

August 2, 2010 3 Comments | Disclosure

Free is something we love around here, and thanks to a generous donation from Fred Meyer, the Discovery Center of Idaho is offering FREE admission for the next SIXTEEN Fridays! You read that right, for the next 16 “Freddy’s Fridays” you will be able to get your entire family in for FREE! Here’s what DCI has to say about it:

Fred Meyer Fund Donates $100,000 to the Discovery Center!

The Fred Meyer Fund has made a very generous gift to the Discovery Center of $100,000. This money will be used to help fund a new community program at the Discovery Center called Freddy’s Fridays. Starting on Friday, August 6th, and running through Friday, November 19th, the Discovery Center will NOT charge admission to visitors for 16 consecutive Fridays!

Add to that our new extended Friday operating hours, from 9AM to 7PM, and we offer full, fun and free days for the entire family at the Discovery Center! And to top that off, our first free Friday (8/6) takes place during our week of Idaho Space Days.

My kids LOVE this place and our season passes just expired, so this is perfect timing!  I can’t wait to take advantage of this offer.

A big thanks to Michelle Edmonds of Today’s Channel 6 for this FAB tip!

    One word. SWEET! :) Though, yeah…first thing that comes to mind is…hm…wonder how crazy it’s going to be there….?

  3. I saw this in the Statesman on Saturday, 7/31 in the C section, I think page 5. I am glad you did a post on it. We’ll be going but not the first or second Friday. Yeah! I wanted to take my kids but the cost for admission was just a bit much for us right now.
