If you’ve ever toured the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. then you know that one of the great features of these awesome museums is that they are completely free. Wouldn’t it be great if all museum’s were free? I’d go to an art museum for a quick rest, take my kids to see a single exhibit, or stop by just to visit a favorite animal or statue. Well, for one day in September, many museums are free.
On September 29th, participating locations across the country emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C. venues. You won’t need money. But you will need a ticket. Fortunately those are easy to get.
Starting August, 1, just go to Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live website, look for participating museums near you, and download yours. (You can get only two tickets per household so don’t invite everyone you know to go with you.)
See you there!
