  1. Just scored tickets to EMP for my husband and I. I am super excited as we just moved here and really have been wanting to go.

    1. This is a once a year promo, Amber – but there are free museum days once a month that we share on our events list – see up in our list on Thursday (they are on Thursday evenings once a month) – they don’t include all of these museums, but do include a number of them!
