Find Out How to Get Free Admission to Museums Nationwide on September 22
Smithsonian magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day is celebrating “Women Making History” on September 22, 2018, and if you want to be a part of the fun, you can download tickets for free admission to museums nationwide.
More than 1,250 museums have registered to help celebrate Museum Day, which highlights the importance of museums as places that provide insight and inspiration to visitors. The event is also meant to represent a national commitment to access, equity, and inclusion.
This year’s theme will honor women in society who are trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation, and culture, and those inspiring others to be pioneers in their fields.
In keeping with the theme, the Museum Day Twitter account has been sharing interesting #WomenMakingHistory facts, including a 110th birthday shout-out to Mary G. Ross, the first Native American female engineer whose aerospace contributions helped America “reach the stars.”
Another tweet featured Alice Tangerini, who makes “art in the service of science” and is the first and only botanical illustrator at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
If you’d like to attend the 14th annual Museum Day in your area, head to the Museum Day website to see the full list of participating museums. If you’re in Washington, DC, you might want to check out the National Museum of the American Indian. And those in New York can spend some time at the Museum of Chinese in America. If you’re in Florida, this would be the perfect opportunity to pop into the Orlando Museum of Art, and if you have kids and are in Saginaw, try the Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum.
You can download one free ticket, which is good for two people, per email address. Each ticket grants the ticket holder and one guest free access to any participating museum on September 22.
