California Academy of Sciences Offers Free Admission to Military, Police, Fire, Teachers Feb 1 to Mar 15

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Does that headline make enough sense? It means that if you are a member of the military (yes, including even the touchy touchy Coast Guard), or a firefighter, or a peace officer, or a teacher, then you can get into San Francisco’s awesome California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park for free over the next month-and-a half:

“From February 1 through March 15, 2010, the Academy will offer free admission to military personnel, firefighters, police officers, and teachers, in honor of their service to our communities and country. To participate, individuals must show proof of occupation and a valid ID at the ticket window. This discount applies to one individual admission only and cannot be combined with other offers.”

Just think, your camera could soon be recording the most-photographed fish in the world:

This temporary program will save you $24.99.

See you there, hero.

Keep an eye out for it when you’re on the Embarcadero near Mission looking south.
