Saturday is Museum Day, courtesy of Smithsonian Magazine

September 30, 2006 is the first Museum Day open to the general public. (Apparently, previous Museum Days were limited to subscribers of Smithsonian Magazine.)

You will have to print out the Museum Day Admissions Coupon to get in. Some restrictions apply. Read the fine print.

Even the Institute for Creation Research (an actual museum!) is getting into the act.

    I really like what our city (and Berlin started it, I think) is doing:

    Instead of a Museum Day, have a Museum night! museums open until 4 a.m. and lots of activities surrounding it

    [Now that we’re expanding to other countries, there’s Sweden where state museums are free all year round. -Raymond]
  2. I was lucky enough to be in Athens, Greece around 1999 or 2000 and happened to visit the Parthenon on their Museum Day, so admission was free, which is nice, because normally I think it’s about $40. Just total blind luck.
