Free is good for every traveler’s budget. Now in its seventh year, Smithsonian magazine is working with museum partners across the United States to offer free admission during Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on Sept. 24, 2011.
Last year I took advantage of free admission into the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art and this year I won’t be taking part because I’ll be across the state in Titusville at the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex!
Reserve, Print and Bring Your Ticket!
Be sure to check out the Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day website for the fine print. You’ll need to reserve your ticket in advance at a participating museum, download, print and bring it with you for admission. It’s valid for admission for up to two people (go alone or grab a friend!), per household, per address. Visit www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday to find a museum and reserve your ticket.
Why Do the Museums Offer Free Admission on Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day?
In the spirit of Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission to everyone everyday, participating museums across the U.S. join Smithsonian magazine to offer free admission to anyone with a Museum Day Ticket one day each year. This allows participating museums to raise their profile with visitors who may have not known about them.
