I like to acknowledge Museum Day Live! (now just Museum Day) each year as part of the Harvey Mercheum “special days“. While it is fun to visit virtual museums like the Harvey Mercheum, it is much better to see exhibits in person if possible. On Museum Day, you can get a ticket that will allow two people entrance to one of over a thousand participating museums for free. Lifehacker posted on Monday that tickets for this year are already available. If you have a museum you are particularly interested in visiting on September 22nd, go to this page on the Smithsonian’s website:
find the museum you are interested in, and click “GET A TICKET”.
