Free Art Museums to Visit on Museum Day > With many public spaces being shut down for a year or more, Museum Day 2021 celebrates the reopening of museums after long closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s theme, Experience America, represents the return to, and resurgence of, our country’s diverse cultural experiences, in the safest possible way.
On Saturday, September 18, 2021 museums across the nation will adopt the policy of the Smithsonian, opening their doors for free to visitors with a Museum Day ticket. While tickets will be free of charge, participating museums will have safety precautions in place for this year’s event so guests can safely and comfortably enjoy their experience.
Museum Day goes beyond getting visitors through museum doors—it acts as a springboard to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly school-aged children and those in underrepresented communities. It represents a national commitment to access, equity and inclusion. To see the full list of participating museums and download a free ticket please click here.
Tickets for Smithsonian magazine’s 17th annual Museum Day are now available for download. Each ticket grants the ticket holder and one guest free, timed access to any participating museum on September 18, 2021. One ticket is permitted per email address. This year’s event is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company.
