Smithsonian museums offer free admission everyday, but there’s one day a year in which other select museums across the country also open their doors at no cost: Museum Day Live. That day is this Saturday, Sept. 27, on which you can get two free tickets to participating museums. All you have to do is head here, register for a free account, select which museum you’d like to visit, and download your tickets or show them the day of on your phone. Pretty simple.
