Things to Do This Weekend for (Mostly) Free

Spring officially starts today, so go see it at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden ($8 adults, $4 seniors and kids over 12), where it's been quietly happening for weeks (slideshow). The National Weather Service says it's going into the seventies today and the sixties tomorrow. Indoors, there are free Saturdays at the Children's Museum of Manhattan, El Museo del Barrio, and the Jewish Museum (where the Curious George exhibit just opened).
