Need spring break plans? SCFD Free Days provide opportunities for family adventures.

Visit museums, galleries and sights across the Denver Metro area at no cost

Posted on March 9, 2023 2023News and Events


Do you and your family enjoy hands-on learning, exploring the history and beauty of Colorado, or love to express your artistic side?

Adventures await thanks to the Scientific Cultural and Facilities District, which is offering free experiences at organizations around the Denver Metro just in time for spring break and summer vacation.  Your family will have the opportunity to learn about everything from dinosaurs to the wild west roots of Colorado at the following organizations:

Other organizations participating in 2023 Free Days include: the Clyfford Still Museum, Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Denver Zoo. See all the dates and learn more about the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District by visiting the SCFD website.

Denver Metro area voters created the seven-county SCFD in 1988 to ensure public access to the arts and sciences through public financial support for scientific and cultural organizations. It was most recently renewed by voters in 2016. Each year, SCFD helps fund nearly 300 area organizations via the collection of a 0.1% voter-approved retail sales and use tax. The district-wide tax equates to one cent collected on every $10 spent.
