Museum Day is Sept. 29, which means free admission to participating venues:
In the spirit of Smithsonian Museums, who offer free admission everyday, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket…for free.
Check out the list of venues to see if there is a participating museum near you. Or maybe that day is a good opportunity to drive a little bit farther than usual to check out some exhibits for free.
