Visitors are invited to enjoy the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History in Oakland for free on the third Sunday of every month in 2018.

This perk is part of a series of free and discounted admission opportunities for the year.

“We look at these new monthly free Sundays as kind of an open house for the Pittsburgh community,” says Jo Ellen Parker, president and CEO of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, in a news release. “We’re inviting in new visitors and old friends to experience the great treasures of our Museums of Art and Natural History, to have fun with family and friends, and to get inspired. We’re happy to offer these and other free and discounted opportunities that encourage more visitors to enjoy our diverse, dynamic museums.”

Other special admission discounts at the four Carnegie Museums — which reach 1.4 million people annually through exhibitions, educational programs, outreach activities and special events — this year include:

• Free Good Fridays from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Andy Warhol Museum on Pittsburgh’s North Side in January, sponsored by UMPC Health Plan.

• A free Sunday at Carnegie Science Center on March 25 on Pittsburgh’s North Side, sponsored by Duquesne Light.

• Three spring break free days at the Oakland Carnegie Museums and at the Warhol Museum, coinciding with spring break at Pittsburgh Public Schools March 28-30, sponsored by the Jack Buncher Foundation.

• Carnegie Science Center’s annual June Snowball Day, which invites visitors to pay whatever they choose — as long as they bring a preserved snowball with them.

• Free fall RADical Days as part of the Allegheny Regional Asset District’s annual celebration of the region’s cultural and educational attractions.

Half-price admission is offered every weekday after 3 p.m. at the Oakland museums and every Friday after 5 p.m. at the Warhol.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
