March 12th, 2016 is Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live where you can get free admission to one participating museum for you and one guest.
In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket… for free.
Most of the venues allow you also to present the ticket on a smartphone screen and you don’t have to print it out. Look for this sentence, just before the directions: “This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone.”
Last year I reserved my ticket, but couldn’t go to the museum. I had too much work to finish on that day. This year I will probably ending up in the same situation as last year.
