Six Sacramento area museums are joining the Smithsonian magazine “Museum Day Live!” nationwide effort by offering free admission to ticket holders all day on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Participating local museums include: Aerospace Museum of California, California Automobile Museum, California State Military Museum, California State Railroad Museum, Maidu Museum and Historic Site and The California Museum.
While the list of participating museums is still growing for 2013, more than 1,500 museums across the country participated in 2012. The mission of the annual effort is to provide an opportunity for consumers throughout the United States to enjoy and share in the dynamic heritage and cultural life for free.
“Museum Day Live!” tickets are available for download at smithsonianmag.com/museumday. No purchase is necessary to become a registered user and obtain a special event ticket (good for two guests) but a valid e-mail address is required and the offer is limited to one ticket per household.
A printed ticket is needed for free entry on this special day only (note that some museums may be willing to accept the ticket on the screen of a smartphone).
An official “Museum Day Live!” ticket is valid for one entry (for two guests) to just one of the participating museums that must be identified when requesting a free ticket. If a museum reaches capacity, the participating museum has the right to limit the number of guests until space becomes available.
On “Museum Day Live!” and all through the year, the Sacramento area is home to an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and destinations that offer visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science and wildlife treasures.
