The Northwest African American Museum will open their doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticket holders on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 11am until 5pm as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day. Museum Day is a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based museums.

Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity and inclusion. Over 250,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and Museum Day 2018 is expected to attract more museumgoers than ever before.

Museum Day tickets will be available for download at beginning August 15. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at a participating venue of their choice on September 22, 2018. One ticket is permitted per email address and tickets may only be used at one location. Additional guests not included in the Museum Day ticketing will be charged regular admission rates. A list of participating museums, which will be continually updated as more museums continue to register, can be found at
