RAD days are here–check some cultural institutions for free!


The Regional Asset District (RAD) supports local assets in the areas of libraries, parks and recreation, cultural, sports and civic facilities, and programs.  Every fall brings RAD Days, a series of dates where it is free to visit these institutions.  Each day, different places are open free of charge.

Tomorrow, Sunday October 4, is probably the biggest RAD day, with a wide array of exciting places to visit.  The Carnegie Museum of Art and the Natural History Museum, City Theatre, or the August Wilson Center.  On the Northside,  the Andy Warhol Museum, the Mattress Factory, the National Aviary, Manchester Craftsman’s Guild, the Children’s Museum, and Artists Image Resource.  Again, all are free to the public on this day (parking, unfortunately, is not free).  If you’ve been meaning to check out any of these places, tomorrow is a good day to do it.

RAD Days continues through October 11; for tour times and other information, here is the full schedule.
