Feature Friday: Free Admission at the ICA on Thursday Nights!

ICA Free Thursday Nights

Every Friday, I feature a fun and budget-friendly option in the Greater Boston area. The “Feature Friday” is typically mentioned on the Cheap Eats list, Free Things to Do in Boston, or Discount Attractions. However, there’s so much budget-friendly ideas on my pages, I thought it would be fun to feature something budget-friendly and different each week. Also, each Feature Friday is something I have personal experience with or took advantage of recently! Enjoy!

Every Thursday night the Institute of Contemporary Art is free from 5-9pm.

I went a few Thursday nights ago and it was really fun and easy to take advantage of. I did need to check in at the ticket desk; however, there was no line and you just receive a pin thing for your shirt. Unlike the MFA on Wednesday nights, you won’t be asked if you would like to make a donation, or at least I wasn’t asked.

It was definitely a fun and different experience exploring the ICA. It also helped that it was entirely free!

Also, on Thursday nights in the summer at the ICA is Harborwalk Sounds. This is a great way to enjoy free music and free art at the same time!
