Free Admission on September 22, 2018 with a downloadable Museum Day ticket.
Smithsonian magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day, a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based museums.
Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity and inclusion. Over 250,000 people
downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and Museum Day 2018 is expected to attract more museumgoers
than ever before.
The theme of this year’s Museum Day is Women Making History, honoring women in society who are
trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation and culture, and emboldening others to be pioneers as well.
Museum Day tickets will be available for download at Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay beginning August
15. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on
September 22, 2018. One ticket is permitted per email address. A list of participating museums, which will
be continually updated as more museums continue to register, can be found at
