Smithsonian will be celebrating its 18th annual Museum Day on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine, the one-day event applies to a number of participating museums across the country. Smithsonian institutions and museums are always free!
Visitors can go online and input an email address, which will issue them one ticket that is good for free entry for two people to participating museums. However, you can only sign up for free entry to one museum.
Museums and cultural institutions that are participating in Washington, D.C., include the U.S. Botanic Garden, the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, and Dumbarton House.
