If you have been putting off going to your local museum, then you now have a pretty good excuse to go this weekend.
In celebration of Museum Day this Saturday, over 1,500 museums will be allowing free admission to their institutions for the day.
The event, which is orchestrated by Smithsonian, is allowing one free admission ticket per email address and each ticket will allow free admission for two people.
Cultural institutions in all 50 American states – from history museums to botanical gardens and state zoos – will be participating.
If you want to look at a complete list of participating museums or you want to get free tickets, you can check out the Smithsonian website.
Additionally, Smithsonian just released a list of their 10 favorite can’t-miss museums, including the Zoo Miami and the quirkier National Barber Museum in Canal Winchester, Ohio.
