PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — College students get into the Philadelphia Museum of Art for free tomorrow.

Museum officials will be welcoming area college students with daylong festivities including food, music, and giveaways on the famous steps.

Then, inside, the young art lovers will be encouraged to gather, relax, and enjoy the beautiful artwork.

Elizabeth Milroy, the museum’s curator of public programs, says the institution has been holding this event for 27 years, “to welcome the students to the heart of the city’s culture and one of the great arts institutions in this country and the world, and to give them the opportunity to see the amazing works of art that we have in our collections.”

Students must show a valid college ID.
