In order to promote public interest in museums, Smithsonian magazine has created Museum Day Live!, a day devoted to highlighting museums across America. Since Smithsonian museums offer free admission year-round, Museum Day Live! provides individuals with the ability to visit museums, that normally have an admission fee, free of charge. By registering online with Smithsonian magazine and printing out a Museum Day Live! ticket, you and a guest will be eligible to check out a variety of museums covering a wide array of interests.
Thankfully for Long Islanders, there are plenty of local museums that are participating in Museum Day Live! by opening their doors for free on Friday, September 27th. Including everything from art to historical building tours, the list of participating museums in Nassau and Suffolk counties will appeal to people of all ages and preferences.
