From Arts Boston Calendar: "It’s great to experience art, and Boston has some of the best art museums and cultural institutions in the country. But admission isn’t cheap, so whether you’re an art addict, looking for things to do or trying to entertain visiting friends and family, a visit to a museum or two can get costly. Luckily most art museums offer free admission on certain days, so we’ve put together a list of all the best times and days you can get free admission."
