Free admission at museums in Boston and across the U.S.


On Saturday, Sept. 26, museums around the country will do as the Smithsonian museums do in Washington, open their doors for free. It’s the Smithsonian magazine’s 5th annual museum day event, and it’s a perfect excuse to see what’s new at your favorite museum

In Boston and surrounds, there are 16 participating museums so far, and they include the JFK Presidential Libray and Museum (site of the recent memorial service for Sen. Ted Kennedy), the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science, the Old South Meeting House and the Lowell National Historical Park.

If you’re in other cities or on-the-road that day, know that some 1,200 museums in all 50┬ástates will likewise invite you to visit that day – for free (but you do need to print out an admission ticket online). Check the listings on a clickable map.
