Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live! and National Public Lands Day on Sept. 28, 2013 mean more than free admission into select museums and national parks. It’s the perfect opportunity to feed your soul by doing something different while saving on your budget.
Here are the deets…
Explore a Museum during Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live!
Whether traveling far from home or in your backyard, Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live! is an excuse to embrace art and culture frugally.
Visit the Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live! website to find a participating museum, reserve your ticket and read the fine print. You’ll need to reserve your ticket in advance at a participating museum, download, print and bring it with you for admission. It’s valid for admission for one person plus a guest (go alone or grab a friend!), per household, per address into one museum.
Visit a National Park Free for National Public Lands Day
This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day so why not spend it outdoors? Step into some of the country’s most loved parks, forests, gardens, beaches, and wildlife preserves to help maintain and build about 1,500 miles of trails and plant approximately 100,000 trees, shrubs and other native plants.
Visit the National Public Lands Day website to find a project near you. Or, if you’d rather explore one of America’s treasure’s, visit the National Park Service website for additional information about free admission. Other federal lands are also offering fee-free days and find additional information here.
If you’re tied up visiting a museum on Sept. 28, the next free national park admission weekend coincides with Veterans Day Weekend, Nov. 9 – 11, 2013. Don’t let an admission fee prevent you from visiting your national parks, they are still a bargain! And, according to the National Park Service 268 of the 401 national parks never charge an entrance fee?
