Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian Magazine where you can get admission into participating museums across the country absolutely free. This year, Museum Day Live! will be this Saturday, September 29th, and you can see a list of participating museums here.
To get admission for two, you will need to get a ticket here. The ticket is emailed to you after you submit your information and you’ll need to print out the email to gain free access.
There are quite a few venues participating, including every Smithsonian Institution Museum (they are always free anyway, with the exception of the Cooper-Hewitt and National Design Museum). Here in Maryland, we have several dozen museums participating in Museum Day Live!
It’s a fun way to visit museums with your family without paying a penny!
