Visit the B&O Railroad Museum and others free this weekend by just downloading a ticket in a special bonus event of Museum Day Live! March 12.
In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket for free. The ticket covers the cost for two quests.
The event is usually held in September but the March 12 event is a special edition of Museum Day Live!, providing an opportunity to the public to enjoy and share in our nation’s dynamic heritage and cultural life, according to the website.
Museums participating in the Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, D.C. area include the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore and Ellicott City, Calvert Marine Museum, College Park Aviation Museum, National Building Museum, Reginald F. Lewis Museum and many more. For a list of participating museums visit the Museum Day Live! website.
To receive a free Museum Day Live! ticket for two guests, register for an account on the Museum Day Live! website. Once registered, visitors can request a ticket to one participating venue. The ticket will be available to download immediately up to March 12. You must print your ticket and present it to receive your free admission or have it accessible on your mobile device.
