Smithsonian's Museum Day to Open Up 1,300 Museums for Free

Clear your calendar for September 25 because it's Smithsonian magazine's Museum Day, which means that you can get access to a whole bunch of museums for free.

More than 1,300 museums nationwide will be participating in the sixth annual event. You can visit everything from the Brooklyn Museum in New York to the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle without laying down even a dime.

The great thing is that you can use the freebie to visit tourist favorites like the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, the Getty Center in L.A. or the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. Or you can use the pass to try out an interesting-sounding museum that you've been meaning to check out, like the Cartoon Art Museum of California in San Fran or the OZ Museum—as in "we're off to see the Wizard"—in Wamego, Kansas.

You can get a list of participating hotels and download your gratis ticket here. Each ticket allows entry for two, and only one is permitted per household. So you families of three or more will still have to shell out some money for admission.
