This year, the list of free museums has gotten even bigger, expanding to included fine museums in New Mexico and and Ohio. In all, 150 institutions are participating from noted children's museums to such powerhouse organizations as the deYoung in San Francisco, the Chicago Art Institute and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. It ain't all paintings either: the freebie extends to such specialty venues as the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland.
