Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day: Free Admission on 4/4
The Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day will be Saturday, April 4th, 2020. 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.
