September 21 is a day to look forward to if you’re a museum-lover. On that date, hundreds of museums across the United States will offer free admission to their exhibitions as part of the Smithsonian Museum Day. The annual event, sponsored by Smithsonian magazine, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.


Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country will provide free admission to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket. These tickets are currently available on the Museum Day’s website, where visitors can search for participating museums in their area.

Each Museum Day ticket provides complimentary general admission for two people. Participants can only download one ticket per email address. The Smithsonian warns participants once a museum is selected, they can not change it. Choose wisely!
