This Saturday, September 29, a multitude of museums in the U.S. will offer free admission. That's because Saturday is Museum Day Live, an event hosted by Smithsonian Magazine. On the big day, participating museums will make like a Smithsonian (it's always free to visit Smithsonian Museums) and offer complimentary access for anyone holding a Museum Day Live ticket.
You can get the ticket on the Museum Day Live website. It doesn't cost anything, and it's valid for two people visiting museums together. There's also a list of participating museums on the site, complete with an interactive map. Zoom in to see which museums near you are opening their doors for free this weekend. Remember: You'll only receive complimentary admission if you're holding a Museum Day Live ticket.
All kinds of museums are participating in the event, from art galleries to National Historic Landmarks to planetariums. Some popular attractions include Old South Meeting House in Boston (where colonists kicked off the Boston Tea Party), Adler Planetarium in Chicago, and the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
