Save the date: March 12 is a “special edition” spring date for the annual Smithsonian Institution Museum Day Live! event, offering FREE admission to hundreds of museums across the USA. Just as with the September event, you can’t just walk in. Free tickets re required for free admission.
To get the tickets, the procedure is the same as with the annual Museum Day Live! event each September:
Create an account with some basic information — very quick and simple. Each ticket is good for free museum admission for two people, so if you are a larger group, you’ll need additional tickets for two. But note that the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Day Live! free ticket is good for only one ticket per household, so friends or family must register for their own.
You can get free admission to top museums in New York City any day of the week. See our NYCOTC list of free museum days.
When your ticket arrives in your inbox, just print it and you’re ready to open your mind at a participating museum — not your wallet.

Check back often, as more museums are expected to be added leading up to the event. Museums are always an adventure, with so much to see, do and learn.
