Participating museums nationwide will offer free admission on Smithsonian Magazine’s Free Museum Day, with a downloadable Museum Day ticket. This event typically takes place in mid-September and tickets are usually available to download starting in August. More information coming soon!
When is Smithsonian Free Museum Day?
Smithsonian Magazine’s annual Museum Day is an initiative in which participating museums across the United States open their doors for free to those who download a branded ticket. The annual event allows museums, zoos, and cultural centers from all 50 states to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day.
Museum Day goes beyond getting visitors through museum doors—it acts as a springboard to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly school-aged children and those in underrepresented communities. It represents a national commitment to access, equity and inclusion.
