Participating museums nationwide, including the Condé-Charlotte Museum, to offer free admission September 21, 2019, with downloadable Museum Day ticket
MOBILE, Ala. – Smithsonian magazine has designated Saturday, September 21, 2019 as the 15th Annual Museum Day, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States open their doors for free to those who download a branded ticket. The annual event allows museums – including the Condé-Charlotte Museum – zoos, and cultural centers from all 50 states to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day.
Museum Day goes beyond getting visitors through museum doors; it acts as a springboard to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly school-aged children and those in underrepresented communities. It represents a national commitment to access, equity and inclusion.
Those wishing to attend and participate in Museum Day 2019 at the Condé-Charlotte Museum may visit Smithsonian.com/museumday to learn more and to download a Museum Day ticket. Each ticket grants the ticket holder and one guest free access to any participating museum on September 21, 2019. One ticket is permitted per e-mail address.
A list of participating museums, with will be continually updated, may be found at Smithsonian.com/museumday/search. More than 1,500 museums are expected to participate this year, the largest event of its kind.
