We’re pretty spoiled with the free Smithsonian museums here in DC, but people outside of DC have to actually (gasp!) pay for museum admission. Lucky for them, tomorrow is Smithsonian Museum Day, which grants free admission to museums across the country. Here in DC, several museums are participating in the promotion, such as The National Museum of Crime and Punishment (tickets are typically $20), the Kreeger Museum (typically $10), the Woodrow Wilson House (typically $7.50), and the Marian Koshland Science Museum (typically $5), just to name a few.

To take advantage of these free tickets, sign up here.  Choose which museum you’ll be visiting, and your ticket (to admit two people) will be e-mailed to you.  It’s as simple as that!
