Freebie Friday: Free Museum Entry Across the US Tomorrow

The dazzling Milwaukee Museum of Art is participating
Thank you Smithsonian! Not only for keeping your museums free of charge (with the exception of the Cooper-Hewitt in New York City) but for recognizing that the ever-increasing entrance fees at other important institutions are a barrier for many would-be visitors.

For the second year in a row, Smithsonian Magazine will be giving away free tickets to 1300 institutions across the United States. With that many museums involved, almost every interest under the sun is covered in the giveaway from the Surfing Museum (in California) to the American Clock and Watch Museum (in Connecticut) to the National Model Aviation Museum (Indiana). Important art, science, children's and history museums are also on board.

To get the free tickets, click here to register in advance. The Smithsonian is limiting the give away to two tickets per household, but does not seem to be capping the number of downloadable tickets its giving altogether. Tickets are valid all day Saturday September 24 (and in cases when the museum is closed on Saturdays, on Sunday September 25 instead).
