Smithsonian magazine has designated Saturday, September 22 as the 14th annual Museum Day, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States open their doors for free to those who download a branded ticket.
The annual event allows museums nationwide to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day.
The theme of this year’s Museum Day is “Women Making History,” honoring women in society who are trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation and culture, and emboldening others to be pioneers as well.
