Museum Day 2019 – Get FREE Museum Tickets


In 2019, Smithsonian Museum Day is Saturday, September 21st. On this day, visitors can get two free tickets to participating museums.

Is This Really A Good Deal?

In a lot of cases, no. Many of these museums are free or cheap year round and may require a road trip. In those cases, you may be happier visiting on a more convenient day. However, for other participants, Smithsonian’s Museum Day may be the only chance to see that museum for free. (Note that you only get two free tickets, you may still end up paying for some family members). We lay them all out for you here, listing the museum and its address, an approximate drive-time from the Twin Cities, and the prices you would pay any other day.

Finally, If you don’t see the museum you want to visit on this list, check the Museum Day page linked above, because sometimes there are last-minute additions.
