Museum Day Live

26 09 2013

Smithsonian Magazine is presenting Museum Day Live this Saturday September 28th, 2013. What is Museum Day Live?

In the spirit of Smithsonian Museums, who offer free admission everyday, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket… for free.


All you have to do is go here and request a ticket good for 2 people per household. If you have more than two people they will have to pay for admission. This is a great way to maybe go see a place you’ve wanted to before, but didn’t want to spend the money. Me? I’ll be headed up to Dayton to check out the Boonshoft Museum, and then head over to the Art Institute of Dayton for their Octoberfest (in which the museum is also open and free to the public but separate admission to Octoberfest is required.)

If you’re going to be traveling or want to head out farther to Louisville or Columbus, check out the entire venue list here.

There are a number of Greater Cincinnati area Museums that are participating:

Taft Museum of Art


The Betts House


Xavier University Art Gallery


Boonshoft Museum of Discovery


Carillon Historical Park


SunWatch Indian Village & Archaeological Park


Springfield Museum of Art


Fort Ancient


Glendower Historic Mansion


Warren County History Center


Behringer-Crawford Museum

Covington, KY

Kentucky Gateway Museum Center

Maysville, KY

Life on the Ohio River History Museum

Vevay, IN

Switzerland County Historical Museum

Vevay, IN

So make a day of it, take in a couple sites by using your email and your significant others/friends. You can easily hit the Taft Downtown and then head across the river to Covington, or up to Music Hall for the Betts House. Or heck all 3!
