One week from today, many museums across the U.S. will let you in without paying admission.
Sept. 28 is Museum Day Live! when you can get into participating venues across the country for free by presenting a special ticket you request online.
The annual event is hosted by Smithsonian magazine and at least two Erie sites are participating.
The Smithsonian magazine website lists the Erie County Historical Society and the Erie Art Museum as taking part in Museum Day Live!
To get free admission to any of the participating venues, you have to go to www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/ticket/ and fill out a form. The site says you’ll then get an e-mail with a ticket to print out and take with you to the museum.
You can get one ticket per household that’s good for free general admission for two people on Sept. 28, the site says.
For more information, including other places taking part, visit www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday or call (202) 633-1000.
