NEW YORK -- The best free ticket in town is just a click away. Starting today, museum-goers can click HERE to download tickets for Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day Live!, which grant free admission for two people per household to participating museums on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Museum Day Live! will be the eighth annual event celebrating education through the nation’s wide array of museums and cultural institutions.

Over 1,400 museums are expected to participate, making this year’s event even larger than last year.”
