Free things to do in Chicago this winter

There are lots of reasons to love Chicago in winter

Facing winter without a fat wad of cash in your wallet might put a damper on any hopes of fun. The good news is you don’t have to bust out your black Amex to build lasting memories this fall/winter.

Check out our tips for fun freebies in Chicago…

Fine Arts Building
At the Fine Arts Building, you’ll find a gallery of breathtakingly beautiful murals and paintings. Set some time aside and introduce your kids to some wonderful art this winter, at zero cost.

DuSable Museum of African American History
Feel like soaking in some history on a Sunday? The DuSable Museum of African American History offers free admission every Sunday of the year. Don’t miss Africa Speaks – a collection of over 2,000 ancient artifacts. This is an awesome way to expose young ones to different cultures.

Old Town Aquarium
Want to see some exotic fish in artfully crafted installations? Head to Old Town Aquarium where you can have a whale of a time this winter. Even better, if you see a fish you like, you can bring it home with you.

John G. Shedd Aquarium
