The best free ticket in town is just a click away - museum-goers can head to smithsonian.com/museumdaylive to download tickets for Smithsonian magazine's Museum Day Live!
Tickets grant free admission for two people per household to participating museums on Saturday, Sept. 29. In the Pittsburgh area, The Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, the Senator John Heinz History Center and Photo Antiquities are participating.
Museum Day Live! will be the eighth annual event celebrating education through the nation's wide array of museums and cultural institutions. For one day only, participating locations across the country will emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution's Washington, D.C.-based facilities.
The program encourages learning and the dissemination of knowledge nationwide. Last year's event drew more than 350,000 museum-goers to over 1,400 museums.
"With September right around the corner, people can start to plan their Museum Day Live! experience now," said Jennifer Hicks, Group Publisher, Smithsonian Media. "Our free online ticketing makes accessing museums and cultural institutions easy for anyone that is interested. Over 1,400 museums are expected to participate, making this year's event even larger than last year."
