In celebration of history and art (not to mention the Smithsonian’s free admission policy), over 800 museums around the country open their doors to the public free of charge. Though not all of NYC’s participants scream “kid-friendly” (looking at you, Museum of American Finance), families can score entry to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, the Skyscraper Museum, El Museo Del Barrio, the NYC Fire Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design and more by downloading a Museum Day Live ticket on the Smithsonian’s website. Two tickets will be permitted per household, per email address. All ages.
