While admission is always free at the Smithsonian Museums, this is not the case at most museums in the U.S. For this reason, Smithsonian magazine hosts Museum Day Live, an annual event where museums around the country offer free admission to anyone with a Museum Day Live! ticket – tickets are available for free here. This year’s event takes place on Saturday, September 26, 2014.
