Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day: Free Admission on 9/18

It’s back! The Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day will be on September 18th 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.

This year, Museum Day will celebrate Earth Optimism.

Earth Optimism Programming Ideas:

  • Host a lecture or panel discussion about social environmental justice
  • Screen a film in which the environment plays a key role
  • Host an exhibition with a focus on its environmental themes
  • Host a crafts booth that allow those to create a piece using sustainable materials
  • Create a scavenger hunt of pieces in your collection that showcase earth optimism
  • Host a nature walk among your organization’s grounds
