All those interested in visiting some great museums in the US can have a free ticket for September 29th for them and a companion through Museum Day Live!, an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket.
It is a great initiative, and anyone can get their free Museum Day Ticket here.
An important mention: a ticket will gain entry to only one of the participating museums, excluding parking and special events and exhibits. But it is still a great thing, I think.
You can see the list of 2012 participating museums here.
Events like this – free entrance to museums take place all over the world. I participated in such an event in my country, Romania – where these is a White Night of the Museums when people can visit for free several museums. Also, during European Heritage Days some countries will offer free entrance sometime in September to some tourist sights.
Of course, I’m recommending all to benefit from this free ticket initiative, but also to enjoy great museums all year long 🙂
