Last year coronavirus canceled just about everything including Smithsonian magazine’s free Museum Day.
But this year it is coming back so just to make sure that you are ready.
If you are not familiar with this day, it offers free admission to more than 1,000 museums, zoos, and cultural centers located all across the country.
The free museum day will be on September 18 which falls on a Saturday.
How to get a ticket:
To get a ticket you will have to select a museum and download a ticket from the Smithsonian Magazine website.
If you click on that link you can use the filter on the left to filter museums based on states which I think is the easiest way to search.
I searched through Texas and Arizona and found quite a few museums that I had never heard of but that looks pretty cool to visit like the Museum of Southern History in Houston Texas.
Some of the museums look very random but could make for a cool Saturday morning visit, especially since you won’t have to come out of pocket.
Tickets will be available to download beginning at midnight on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.
You are allowed to download one ticket per email address but each ticket allows entry for two people.
If you like museums and like to visit them for free you should also check out the Bank of America Museum on US program.
