Following the success of Free Saturdays—a program offering free admission to San Francisco residents every Saturday—the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco today announced that they will be extending the program to include the entire Bay Area.

Starting October 19, 2019, general admission to the de Young and Legion of Honor museums will be free every Saturday for all residents of the nine-county Bay Area.

In addition to granting free general admission on Saturdays, the de Young and Legion of Honor also offer expanded programming as part of the Free Saturdays lineup, including gallery talks, book signings, talks and lectures, family art making, and more. The ever-popular Spreckels organ concerts will continue to take place at the Legion of Honor. All of this programming will also be free.

The expanded Free Saturdays program joins other free and reduced-admission programs at the Fine Arts Museums, including Free Tuesdays, Free Access, Museums for All, and Discover & Go. Youth ages 17 and under are always free. Details on all the free and reduced-admission program follow.
