Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live is a nationwide event that is offering two free admissions per household to a wide variety of museums on September 28. There are a few catches. For one you must register on their website and print your tickets at home. You also have to pick the museum you want to go to when you register for the free tickets.
There are several Chicago museums participating and it is a good chance to go to a lesser-known but still high quality museum for free. Unlike other free museum days which require you to be an Illinois resident Museum Day Live is open to anyone with internet access.
Participating Chicago Museums:
- Adler Planetarium
- Clarke House Museum
- French Heritage Museum
- Glessner House Museum
- International Museum of Surgical Science
- Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art
- Loyola University Museum of Art
- Museum of Contemporary Art
