5 Local Museums to Offer Free Admission During “Museum Day Live!” on 9/26!

Five Sacramento area museums are joining the Smithsonian magazine “Museum Day Live!” nationwide effort by offering free admission to advance registrants all day on Saturday, September 26, 2015.

Participating local museums include the following:   Aerospace Museum of California, California Automobile Museum, California Museum, Maidu Museum & Historic Site and State Indian Museum.  The mission of the annual effort is to provide an opportunity for consumers throughout the United States to enjoy and share in our dynamic heritage and cultural institutions for free.

“Museum Day Live!” tickets are available for download at www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday.  

No purchase is necessary but advance registration and a valid email address are required to obtain an event ticket good for two guests.  The special free admission offer is limited to one ticket per household.  A printed ticket must be presented at the time of admission.  An official “Museum Day Live!” ticket is valid for one entry (for two guests) to just one of the participating museums that must be identified when requesting a free ticket.   If a museum reaches capacity, the participating museum has the right to limit the number of guests until space becomes available.

To make “Museum Day Live!” even more special, the Maidu Museum & Historic Site in Roseville is offering guided tours at 10 a.m. & 1 p.m. along with acorn grinding, bracelet making and a scavenger hunt -- all complimentary for guests.  Additionally, the State Indian Museum is offering a Native American Flute Workshop for beginners from 10 a.m. to noon that day.  Workshop fees apply and pre-registration is required by calling 916-324-0971.

On “Museum Day Live!” and all through the year, the Sacramento area is home to an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and destinations that offer visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science, and wildlife treasures.
