SAM to join Museum Day Live! on September 23

The Saint Albans Museum will offer complimentary admission on Saturday September 23, 2017, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s thirteenth annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities open their doors for free to those who download/print a Museum Day Live! ticket. 

Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and inspiration. The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are. Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever before.

The Museum Day Live! ticket is available for download at Smithsonian.com/museumday. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 23, 2017. One ticket per email address is permitted. For more information about Museum Day Live! 2017 and a full list of participating museums and cultural institutions, please visit Smithsonian.com/museumday.

“We’re pleased to join this national movement of museums and cultural institutions across the country to promote discovery and exploration in our community,” said Alex Lehning, Executive Director of the Saint Albans Museum. “The mission of the Smithsonian is an inspiration and truly a call to ‘boundless curiosity’ for all ages.”
