Museum Day Live 2014

It's that time again! Time to get your free tickets to museums around your around your area or where you'll be traveling. Last year we hit up Portland's World Forestry Center. This year we'll be traveling, but we'll have just come from Washington, DC where we'll have visited several free Smithsonian museums (free everyday!), so we won't be partaking this year.


Museum Day Live! is a great way to see some of those spendy museums you always mean to get to, but then don't. There are over 1,000 participating across America that can be a fun (and entertaining) for the whole family. I know not all museums are fascinating for children, but there are plenty that are educational and fun for them, including the Pacific Aviation Museum in Honolulu, the Koshland Museum of Science in DC, the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan and Zoo Miami in Florida.

If you don’t have kids and just want to see some fantastic art, that’s great too, and you will have plenty more to choose from. Museums of history, art and sculptures fill the list in each state, so you will find something that will fit your mood. All you have to do is go to the website, choose your preferred museum and submit your information. You’ll get an email to print out your free ticket and gain admission for two people. It’s that easy! You can get a free ticket for two per email address/household. If there are more people in your group, use your husband’s email address or a friend’s. I don’t think you’ll need to go so far as to pretend you don’t know each other when you enter, but use your own judgment.

The majority of the free entries are September 27, but a select few aren’t open on Saturdays and are offering it on Sunday, September 28. You MUST have your printed ticket to get free entry, so don't forget it.
