Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day is back this Sat., Sept. 17. That means free admission to participating museums around the country.

🎟 How it works

Reserve an official Museum Day ticket for you + a guest to visit a participating museum. When you present the ticket (make sure to check the ticket to see if it needs to be printed), you’ll be granted free admission.

Note: You can only reserve a ticket for one museum — so choose wisely. Once you submit the form, you won’t be able to go back and change your selection.
