ORLANDO, Fla. – People can get free admission to more than a dozen Central Florida museums on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Museum Day, sponsored by Smithsonian magazine, is an annual event where museums and other institutions across the country accept free admission tickets from the Smithsonian magazine website. It began in 2005 in conjunction with the magazine’s 35th anniversary.

To get a ticket, go to the website and find the museum you want to visit. Then, click “Get a Ticket” and fill out your email and name.
You get one ticket, good for you and a guest, to get into the museum for free. Only one ticket is allowed per email address so if you want to go to multiple museums, you can only get into one for free.
If your party is larger than two people, others will have to pay full admission unless they can get their own ticket with an email.
Here are the Central Florida museums taking part in Museum Day. More museums may be added so keep checking before you order that ticket, but be aware — the museum has the right to limit tickets due to capacity.
