Happy Hump Day! It may only be mid-week, but it’s never too early to start making weekend plans. This Saturday, September 22, is Smithsonian Magazine’s annual Free Museum Day, a day when museums all across the United States offer (you guessed it) free admission.
In order to participate, you can click here to search for participating museums and claim your admission voucher for two. As someone who loves to explore various museums, I first participated in Free Museum Day a few years ago, when I had the pleasure of visiting the Orange County Regional History Center. The museum featured a traveling Gone With The Wind exhibit, and I had the opportunity to see costumes, awards, and letters from the film, all while learning about the history of my very own city.
For those in Orlando and the surrounding areas, a few favorite attractions of mine that will be participating this year include:
- Cornell Museum of Fine Arts
- Art & History Museum of Maitland
- Orlando Museum of Art
- Orange County Regional History Center
- Mennello Museum of American Art
