Enjoy Miami museums but would rather pay for a $15 cocktail than spring for admission? We have fantastic news for you.

September 21 is Museum Day, when thousands of cultural institutions across the country provide free entry—including a handful of attractions in Miami. Tickets are available online at the Smithsonian Magazine website, and all you have to do to claim a pair is register your name and email address. Admission is available to one institution per email address provided, so you’ll need to invent an alias or get your plus one to sign up if you’re interested in museum hopping. 

Local options up for grabs include the Frost Art Museum at FIU, Coral Gables Museum and the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. You’ll need to show your digital ticket to gain admission, and regular rules and hours of operation apply. As for the extra cash you’ve got burning a hole in your pocket, nearly every one of these places neighbors a bar. Go get yourself that overpriced cocktail—it’s Saturday, you’ve earned it.
