California Academy of Sciences | Neighborhood Free Days

California Academy of Sciences | Free Day for Parkside & Sunset ResidentsEach San Francisco neighborhood (defined by zipcode) can visit the California Academy of Sciences for free over a three-day weekend (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) in the spring and fall of each year.

So that means as long as you have a driver’s license or other proof of residency, you can save yourself $34.95 and visit the museum for free. Read the full rules.

The Rules: Each visiting adult must show a valid photo ID with proof of residency (you may not bring out of town guests for free; they still have to pay).

The following items or combinations are acceptable:

  • A driver’s license or state ID card
  • Photo ID plus postmarked envelope, postcard, or magazine label with name and date
  • Photo ID plus utility bill (gas/electric/cable), bank statement
  • Letter from a government agency with name and home address (not a P.O. box)
  • Only residents from the zip codes invited on the designated dates will be admitted free of charge
