Minnesota Children’s Museum (St. Paul) Free Third Sundays

Chances are you already know about this freebie, but it’s always worth a reminder (or maybe it’s new information if you’re new to town!).

The Minnesota Children’s Museum located in downtown St. Paul is a great place for kids to learn and have fun! Every third Sunday is Target Free 3rd Sunday, which means admission is completely FREE. The museum is open from 9 am – 5 pm on Sundays.

You can bet that it will be busier and more crowded than normal, and people are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. They suggest you leave strollers at home or in the car. Another option for visiting for free on a different day: use the MELSA smARTpass program and your library card to get two FREE admission tickets.

Monster Jam is coming to U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday, February 16th! If you missed the earlier deal on Groupon, you can now get discount Monster Jam tickets via Goldstar and save up to 50%!

The tickets they have available are normally $54.39 tickets, but you can get them for only $27.50 when you order 1 to 5 tickets, which is the max. There is also a $6 service fee. Seating is reserved in sections 101, 116, 122, 124, 138 (on the lowest level, but in the corners).
