“Which Chicago Museums are Free on M.L.K., Jr. Day in 2020?”

The Kenneth C. Griffin Museum of Science and Industry, The Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, the John G. Shedd Aquarium, and the Chicago History Museum have some free days for Illinois residents in January and February of 2020, and all of them are free for Illinois residents on Martin Luther King, Junior Day (Monday, January 20, A.D. 2020).  Every schoolchild has the day off, so if either parent (or perhaps a grandparent or an uncle or aunt) also has the day off, a trip to one of these institutions may be a good way to spend the civic holiday.

The Lincoln Park Zoo in Lincoln Park, the National Museum of Mexican Art in Harrison Park in Pilsen, and The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture in Humboldt Park are always free.  However, the National Museum of Mexican Art is closed on Mondays.  The DuSable Museum of African American History in Washington Park is free on Tuesdays.
