Free Museum passes at OPL December 1, 2014 Frugal, Fun 0

buy lasix uk Living in Ottawa we have access to world class museums and galleries. Which is amazing especially when you have kids because they are great places to learn and discover. The only problem is they are expensive. So why not go for free?

The Ottawa Public Library has free museum, art gallery and winter ski passes that you can borrow for one week. The pass allows you to take a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 children) and the passes are available at most branches. The passes are in the Express area at the library and they go fast so it’s always worth checking when you first get there. Just remember you will have to pay for parking so bring cash. Here is a list of links to what’s available.
