3 Museums Offer Free Admission during ‘Museum Day Live!’

Smithsonian Museum Day LiveThree Sacramento area museums are joining the Smithsonian magazine to offer “Museum Day Live!”, a nationwide effort that grants free all-day admission to advance registrants on Saturday, Sep. 24, 2016.

The Aerospace Museum of California, California Museum, and Maidu Museum & Historic Site are taking part in the event, the mission of which is to provide an opportunity for people throughout the United States to enjoy and share in our dynamic heritage and cultural institutions for free.

No purchase is necessary, but advance registration and a valid email are required to obtain the event ticket, good for two guests per household. A printed ticket, valid to entry to just one of the three museums of which must be identified when requesting the ticket, must be presented at the time of admission.  If a museum reaches capacity, the participating museum has the right to limit the number of guests until space becomes available.

Looking for other free museums in Sacramento? Beyond Museum Day Live!, many local museums and destinations offer free admission all year long including California State Capitol Museum, California State Library, California Statewide Collections Center, Don & June Salvatori California Pharmacy Museum,  Locke Boarding House Museum, Museum of Medical History, Old Sacramento Schoolhouse Museum, Old Sacramento State Historic Park, Roseville Utility Exploration Center, Sacramento Historic City Cemetery, Sojourner Truth African American Museum, Verge Center for the Arts, and Wells Fargo History Museum (Downtown and Old Sacramento).  Guided tours may be charged separately.

Museum Day Live! tickets are available for download at www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday.
