PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - You can see beautiful art for the right price September 29th, if you have the right ticket.
It’s the 8th Annual Museum Day sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine. Jennifer Hicks, publisher of Smithsonian Media, says last year 350,000 people participated.
“It’s a national program where participating museums open their doors for free so we can make cultural education accessible to everyone in the country,” explains Hicks.
You must download a ticket that will let you and a guest in for free from smithsonian.com/museumday.
More than a dozen local museums are taking part including the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center and the National Museum of American Jewish History.
