Free culture! Come and get your free culture!
Smithsonian magazine is hosting Museum Day Live! It’s an annual event to honor the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums who offer free admission every day. Museums throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and even one in Panama are in on the deal.
Some participating museums are A-listers with connections to the Smithsonian with others showcasing quirky, focused collections. In New York City, the Skyscraper Museum celebrates all things tall. In Colorado it’s all things small at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys. From aerospace in California to a zoo in South Florida and everything in between, there is something for everyone.
Participating museums will allow you waltz (or walk) through their doors for free on Saturday, September 28, 2013 but you have to have a ticket to play. Easy enough to get. Just go here and fill in some information. They will email a ticket for you to print. (Yes, data mining is alive and well for anything that is “free” these days!)
Each ticket is good for two people but there is a limit of one ticket per household. You’ll still have to pay for parking and special events and exhibits. You’ll see all of the rules on the page where you enter your info.
Expand your horizons this Saturday. With over 1,500 venues on the list to choose from, it should be easy to find a free museum nearby. A little culture never hurt anyone and all you have to invest is a little time.
