Open Easter SundayA lot of things close on Easter Sunday, so if you are heading out, it is a good idea to call ahead. However, you are not stuck at home. There are several family-friendly things to do. Whether you are entertaining and want to show your guests around town, or it’s just your family on Sunday, there is probably something for you. Here is a list of things we’ve found that — according to their websites — are open on Easter Sunday.


Both Zoos are open.

Como Zoo is always free. This is a regular day for Como with all the usual Sunday activities.  It is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  I’ve gone on Easter, and it is very busy. The shuttles are not running yet, so you will want to come early or expect to spend some time finding parking and walking from the lot to the zoo.


Several museums are closed, so again check our calendar and call ahead, but the following is a list of open museums.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
