At long last, the 9/11 Museum has confirmed an opening date: May 21. And while the institution will generally cost $24 to visit, its soon-to-be neighbor Condé Nast is sponsoring opening day with free admission. The publishing behemoth is set to begin moving into One World Trade Center—overlooking the museum and memorial—in November, and is comping tickets to show support for the long-awaited project.

To take advantage of opening day with waived admission this spring, you'll need to reserve via the 9/11 Museum's website. Reservations are open now, so hurry up to nab your spot! As a reminder, 9/11 families, and rescue and recovery workers will always get in for free.
