Keep your eyes open for the Great Falls Museum Consortium with the Sunday Sampler.  This comes around once a year, early April, and offers free admission to all 10 museums for that Sunday.  There is usually a scavenger hunt kind of game offered, with prizes from the museums.  It's a fun, full day with the kids.
