Looking for an affordable way to spend a Saturday? Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day will return on September 17, giving guests free access to museums, zoos and cultural centers throughout the United States. This year’s theme, The American Experience, is a celebration of boundless curiosity that grants access to the remarkable arts, culture, sciences, innovation, and history exhibits across the United States.
Museum Day, sponsored by Quaker and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, fosters knowledge and inspiration by providing invaluable educational experiences for all.
“We are so thrilled to be able to bring Museum Day to the public for the 18th year and to once again be able to highlight many of the museums and cultural institutions that make America so special,” Amy Wilkins, Smithsonian Media’s Chief Revenue Officer, said.
What can visitors expect on Museum Day?
Guests can find a list of the venues here. Visitors to the Baltimore Museum of Industry can explore the new exhibit Fire & Shadow: The Rise and Fall of Bethlehem Steel, and learn about Baltimore’s Sparrows Point steel mill. While fitting with Museum Day’s 2022 theme, the exhibition opened last October.
