You can't pick a bad day to go to a museum; not much beats the option to see great artwork in a cool place.

But September 29 carries extra incentive: A few of our own museums are celebrating Smithsonian's Museum Day Live!, aimed to raise public awareness about the role museums play in our neighborhoods and communities - and to reel in a few visitors with discounts and special events.

On Saturday, September 29, museums around the country will offer free admission when visitors present a printed Museum Day Live! ticket, which can be found on the Smithsonian website. Each ticket is good for two people per household, per address.

Upcoming Events

Participating museums in Arizona include: - Arizona Historical Society Museum at Papago Park in Tempe - Arizona Historical Society in Tucson - Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa - Arizona State Museum in Tucson - Casa Grande Valley Historical Society and Museum in Casa Grande - Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix - Heard Museum in Phoenix - Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park in Phoenix - and University of Arizona Museum of Art in Tucson (to name a few)
