Have you heard about Museum Day Live!? This annual event provides each registrant with up to TWO free tickets to participating museums around the country!
This year (2017) is the program’s 10th anniversary and more than 1,500 museums are participating! Museum Day Live takes place on September 23, 2017!
Where will YOU go?
Getting your free admission is easy!
Step 1: Pick the museum you want to visit.
There are hundreds of participating museums around the country, from Abilene to Zanesville!
The list includes prominent tourist destinations (like the eclectic Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle) and little-known local gems (like the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent).
The list also includes a helpful key that helps you see which museums are Smithsonian affiliates and which ones offer free admission every day. With so many great museums to choose from, I’d recommend skipping the ones that are always free.
You can search by keyword (such as ‘auto,’ ‘train,’ or ‘art’) or by zip code by clicking here.
Once you’ve found the museum you want to attend, you’ll need to reserve your tickets! Click the big orange “Get Tickets” button. You’ll need to provide your email address, name, state and museum.
Step 2: Print your tickets (or don’t)!
When you select your museum, watch out for the smartphone icon in the bottom of the listing. If you see that, you don’t even have to print your tickets! Just show your tickets on your smartphone and you’ll get your free admission.
No smartphone symbol? Better do it the old fashioned way and print those tickets out!
Step 3: Have a really great day!
Get ready for adventure! On the designated date, take your tickets and enjoy the museum of your choice… and don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
