Free Admission to Museums

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!


Only an official Museum Day Live! ticket is eligible for free entry on 9/28/13.


One ticket per household, for two people.


A ticket will gain entry to only one of the participating museums, excluding parking and special events and exhibits.


If museum reaches capacity, museum has the right to limit the number of guests until space becomes available.
