Searching for a fun weekend activity to add to your calendar this month? You may want to save a spot for Smithsonian magazine’s annual Museum Day, which returns on September 17th and gives guests free access to museums, cultural centers, and zoos across the country.
This year’s Museum Day theme will be “The American Experience”, which will highlight the “incredible arts, culture, sciences, innovation and history exhibits across the country,” according to a press release.
While some participating institutions are still registering for the event, guests interested can find a list of the confirmed venues here, which includes the Portland Art Museum in Oregon, the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, New York, and Flight Path Museum in Los Angeles, where guests can explore and enjoy the many exhibitions.
Guests are currently able to download tickets to one of more than 1,000 museums on the Smithsonian magazine website. One ticket is allowed per email address, and tickets are valid for one person and an accompanying guest.
