Here at ABQ Insurance, we want to save you more than just on insurance. With that being said, Albuquerque sure is enchanting, but it doesn’t need to be expensive! In this blog post we will highlight some free or inexpensive things to do around Albuquerque with your kids for some summer fun!
Albuquerque library offers multiple free events, year round! They have a really neat event where children are invited to read to therapy dogs. This gives young readers the opportunity to practice reading out loud. They also have what is called Lego club, where children may come and build at the library (legos are provided). And that’s just a couple of the free events that go on at the library. Keep in mind that there are some events that require you to register, so look out for that when browsing events. https://libevents.abqlibrary.org/calendars?cid=-1&t=d&d=0000-00-00&cal=-1&inc=0
While we were mentioning the library, they also offer what is called a Museum Discovery Pass Program, which gets you FREE access to 21 museums/historic sites in Albuquerque and across our state. There are a few guidelines to follow: these passes are on a first come, first serve basis. And they may not be renewed. For six of the museums, this pass will cover free admission for two adults, and two children. For all others, you may have up to six guests in your group. Here’s more information: https://www.abqlibrary.org/museumpass

There are also other free events that you could take advantage of! Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Michael’s, each offer a version of a free crafting event. Michael’s has a free craft workshop every Sunday from 2pm to 4pm. While Home Depot and Lowe’s offer a free workshop once per month, from 9am to 12pm, and registration is required.
And while this last one is not exactly an event, not enough people know about it!
