The Museum of Anthropology is pleased to announce its participation in Smithsonian magazine’s ninth annual Museum Day Live! on Saturday, September 28. A nationwide event, Museum Day Live! offers free admission to visitors presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket at a participating museum or cultural institution.
Inclusive by design, the event represents Smithsonian’s commitment to making learning and the spread of knowledge accessible to everyone. Museums across all 50 states will have the opportunity to emulate the admission policy of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. Last year, more than 400,000 people attended Museum Day Live! across the United States.
“Although the Museum of Anthropology will continue to offer free admission to all visitors, we are excited to be able to share in the Smithsonian Institution’s celebration of arts, culture, and knowledge,” said PR, Marketing & Membership Coordinator Sara Cromwell.
Visitors to the Museum of Anthropology can explore global cultures through artifacts from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. The two featured exhibits are Celebrating 50 Years of the Museum of Anthropology, and Life After Death: The Day of the Dead in Mexico.
Visitors can download the Museum Day Live! ticket and find a complete list of participating museums at cultural institutions at smithsonian.com/museumday. Visitors who present the ticket will gain free admission for two at participating venues.
