When living in one of the most expensive cities in the country, it’s helpful to know the places in New York City that offer discounts and freebies. Thankfully, many of the Big Apple’s world-class museums and galleries offer free admission on some days, from the one-bedroom-sized Mmuseumm in Chinatown to architectural-icon the Guggenheim Museum. Ahead, we’ve rounded up all of the free museum days in NYC to let you pinch pennies and get your culture fix at the same time.

This weekend, one of my favorite all-encompassing events is hitting the Bowery area: IDEAS CITY. There are so many things to do, you can fill up your weekend and then some! Hear about the intersection of television and art at the Jewish Museum, get inspired by creative ladies at Tedx, or party for a good cause and benefit sustainability initiatives in Panama. Investigate old New York at Paul Zone’s exhibition, zoom to the future and sample cuisine fit for Mars at The Boiler, or settle into the wonderful weird of today at Michael Alan’s latest living installation. End the weekend by being incredibly jealous of artist Brigitte Bouquet’s gorgeous home-gallery and amazing art work.
