We're so excited! Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day (previously known as Museum Day Live!) is a time for all New Yorkers to rejoice. Starting August 15, 2018 at midnight, folks can download two free tickets to be used for entry to NYC museums on the event day, Sept 22, 2018. Psst...this means you'll save your precious dollars for things like a fresh NYC pizza. The event extends to plenty of other cities too, so even if you're not in NYC, be sure to check the Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day website for even more details.
SO. Drumroll please. There are many great NYC and NYC-area museums participating...
Here are just a few of our favorites (see the site for the full lineup):
Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Museum of Arts and Design
American Folk Art Museum
New York City Fire Museum
Museum of Chinese in America
Dyckman Farmhouse Museum
Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden

We hope you enjoy your family adventure! While you're waiting, you'll definitely want to explore our favorite family attractions, indoor playgrounds and local children's museums to make the most of your summer.
