The Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live! returns this year again giving you free admission for one day to more than 400 museums across the country. Yes, there are a lot of museums in the United States and that number only represents the ones participating in the event. The annual event will be held on Saturday, March 12 and there are seven participating museums in Tennessee.
In order to visit a participating museum of your choice, you will need a ticket, which is free. Although the tickets and admission are free, only one ticket may be used per household, per address. The ticket allows admission for two people to one museum. Additional museum guests from your household must pay to enter with you. You may register online and download your ticket. That sounds like a really educational way to spend the weekend and free always sounds really good.
If you know you will be in another state that weekend and would like to take in a museum tour, see what museums are participating where you will be visiting.
