If you’re looking for ideas for Mother’s Day, there are several options around Milwaukee where you can spend quality time with mom and not have to spend any money. 

Betty Brinn Children’s Museum

Although it isn’t being promoted, Betty Brinn Children’s Museum is offering free admission to moms again this Sunday.  The Museum is open from noon until 5:00 p.m.  Admission for everyone else in your party is $6 ($5 for seniors, and free for kids ages one and younger). The  Betty Brinn Children’s Museum isn’t promoting this on their website or Facebook page, however we contacted them and they confirmed that moms are indeed free on Mother’s Day.

Milwaukee County Parks Golf Courses

Purchase one round of golf and a single rider cart after 1:00 p.m. on Mother’s Day, and mom golfs and rides for free. This offer is available at Brown Deer, Dretzka, Oakwood, Whitnall, Currie, Grant, Greenfield, and Lincoln golf courses. More information is available on the Milwaukee County Parks Facebook page

Milwaukee County Zoo

As we wrote about earlier in the week, moms get free admission to the Zoo on Sunday.  The Zoo is open from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Mother’s Day.

Old World Wisconsin

Admission to Old World Wisconsin is free for moms on Mother’s Day.  Although their website doesn’t mention this promotion, it is mentioned on the Wisconsin Historic Sites and Museums Facebook page.  Old World Wisconsin is open from noon until 5:00 p.m. on Mother’s Day.
