The Children's Museum of Utah is offering a free day for families, the first Monday of each month.

Free admissions will be distributed by ticket only, for hour-and-a-half time slots beginning at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m.Tickets are available one week in advance, either for pick up or by sending a self-addressed stamped envelope to Children's Museum, 840 N. 300 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84103.

Each time slot will have 150 tickets available so obtaining tickets in advance is advised.

The museum's free day for families is made possible by funding from the Salt Lake County Arts and Parks Tax, and is a permanent addition to its calendar of attractions.

Because it is a day set aside for families, no groups will be admitted to the museum. Call 322-5268 for ticket information.
