Museums all over the country will open their doors for free on Saturday, Sept. 27th, thanks to Smithsonian Magazine's tenth annual Museum Day Live!

While Washington, D.C.'s Smithsonian museums are always open to the public, more than 1,400 other museums and cultural institutions around the country are following their lead, at least for one day. Here in New York, there are so many museums to choose from and admission can really add up. Choose from museums like the Children's Museum of Manhattan (normally $11 per person), the Fraunces Tavern Museum (normally $7 per person), The Museum of Arts and Design (normally $16 per person), and The Jewish Museum (normally $15 per person), among hundreds of others around the country.

To get the free tickets, find a participating museumnear you, then fill out the online form. Only two free tickets are allowed per household and do not include extra charges for special exhibits like IMAX showings.
