Alternatives To Black Friday Shopping

If you are not a Black Friday shopper, but would like to enjoy some Black Friday special deals and have some fun things to do, there is good news for you. What’s more, you do not even have to spend anything.

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts will open at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, offering free admission to the special exhibit of China’s Terracotta Warriors – “China’s Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor’s Legacy.”  Free admission is only for one hour. The usual $18-per-adult admission resumes at 7 a.m.

The Minnesota History Center in St. Paul will also open at 6 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving, as the museum opens the largest exhibit in its history – “Then Now Wow.” Free admission is for three hours from 6 – 9 a.m. Free parking and even free doughnuts will be available.

Both museums plan to serve coffee to keep everyone awake.

Happy Thanksgiving!
