Free Museum Day is Back Sept 21st, Get Your Tickets Now
If you’re looking to take in some culture on the weekend (or just get the kids out of the house), Smithsonian Magazines is bringing back Museum Day. With over one thousand participating museums across the nation, you’ll be sure to find something to suit your interests: like The Audubon Butterfly Garden in New Orleans or The National Inventors Hall of Fame in Virginia.
The event is on Saturday, September 21nd, and the ticket is good for two people. Check the individual museum’s policies to see if children are free or if they need their own tickets.
Unlike similar events, where lines for admission go for city blocks, you download your tickets in advance online. The tickets are limited to admission to one event for two adults, the ticket holder plus a guest and are limited to one set per email address.
In the Bay Area, the event includes the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito (our top pick for kids), the Museum of Craft and Design, the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art in Napa, and the CuriOdyssey Science Playground and Zoo in San Mateo, amongst others.
