Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day: Free Admission on 9/17

Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day

It’s back! The Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day will be on September 17th this year.

Museum Day brings together museums, zoos & cultural centers from all 50 states to offer free admission to all Museum Day ticket holders. Museum Day represents a national commitment to access, equality and inclusion.

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.

Museum Day shines a spotlight on incredible arts, culture, sciences, innovation and history exhibits across the country. Join us as we celebrate the American Experience – the theme of this year’s event.

Museum Programming Ideas:

  • Host an exhibition with a focus on local arts and culture
  • Screen a film in which aspects of American culture such as travel / environment / education / social justice play a key role
  • Host a crafts booth that allows guests to create a piece using local materials
  • Create a scavenger hunt of pieces in your collection that showcases the American Experience
  • Host a nature or historical walk among your organization’s grounds
