Every Tuesday night from 5pm to 9pm, both Mint Museums offer free admission. Once a month, from October, 2012, until May, 2013, one of the Mint Museum locations will present an ArtFusion program on the Free Tuesdays, from 6pm until 9pm. The programs will be free as well. The ArtFusion programs extend the exhibits by offering hands-on activities or relating the visual art to art of another medium, like fashion or food. Registration is not required.
