Today is the perfect day to check out one of the local museums you’ve always wanted to see. That’s because today, September 28, over 15 museums in the Philadelphia area are offering free admission.

In celebration of Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live!, participating museums across the country are opening their doors to share vast historical, scientific, and cultural holdings with the public. Smithsonian Museums are always free, but printing out a Smithsonian Museum Day ticket today will grant you the rare opportunity to explore one of the city’s many hidden treasures without opening your wallet. All you will need is a printed ticket downloaded from the Smithsonian website.

Participating museums in Greater Philadelphia include the Penn Museum, The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the Rosenbach Museum and Library, The African American Museum in Philadelphia, National Museum of American Jewish History, and many more worthwhile institutions.

In a city renowned for its cultural offerings, there’s no shortage of must-see museums. Here’s your chance to get in for free.
