FREE Day at the Museum
I cut the following out of the Sunday newspaper (either the Rockford Register Star or the Chicago Tribune) and I thought others might be interested:
“No plans for Saturday, September 29th? Here’s a thought: Smithsonian magazine is hosting its annual Museum Day Live!, which grants free admission to some 1,400 museums nationwide. Download tickets for a locale near you at Smithsonian.com/museumday.”
Once you visit the site you select the state of your choice and it will give you a list of various museums (art, science, natural history, etc) as well as botanical parks from which to select. You make your selection and print your ticket then and there. It will also provide you with the following info:
Know before you go:
- One ticket for two people only
- One ticket per valid e-mail address
- One ticket will gain entry in only the museum listed on your printed ticket
- Ticket must be presented for free general admission to one venue and is good for two people. Not valid for special exhibits, parking, IMAX film screenings or for use with any other offers.
- Only an official Museum Day Live! Ticket is eligible for entry
- If museum reaches capacity, museum has right to limit guests until space becomes available
What a great way to take the family to see a new destination at a free or reduced price. I downloaded a ticket for the Adler Planetarium in Chicago as I’ve never been there and since I’ll be on the museum campus I can also visit, for a fee, either the Shedd Aquarium or the Field Museum, my personal favorite.
