Westchester and the Lower Hudson Valley are rife with enrichment opportunities, and some of the best places for these experiences take place in our area museums. While frequent visits can get costly, all of the museums on this list have FREE days or times. Some programs still require registration, so we suggest you check with the museum before you head out.
Reminder: In addition to the days and times listed here, many libraries hold a number of free museum passes as well.
