"Museum Day Live!" offers free admission from coast to coast. Find out how to get your ticket.

Saturday is what Smithsonian magazine calls “Museum Day Live!” But a better name for it might be “Museum Day Free.”

Hundreds of museums and other cultural institutions across the country will waive their admission charges on March 12, opening their doors to the public for free.

This one-day event is hosted by Smithsonian magazine and inspired by the Smithsonian museums, where admission is always free.

All that’s required to take advantage of the freebie tomorrow is to present a Museum Day Live! ticket.

You can obtain a ticket by creating a Museum Day Live! account on Smithsonian.com’s “Ticket Registration” page. (Creating an account is free and requires only an email address.)

From there, you can either print your ticket and bring it to a participating museum or display it on a mobile device at the museum. Also note that one ticket is good for two guests’ admissions. So if you attend with someone else, only one of you needs to register for an account and present a ticket.

To find a museum that has chosen to participate in Museum Day Live! this year, visit Smithsonian.com’s “Search for a Museum” page.

First lady Michelle Obama speaks of the variety of participating institutions in a video statement on the Smithsonian website:

“I am so thrilled to join you in celebrating Museum Day because America’s museums, libraries, zoos and aquariums are truly national treasures. There are cultural town squares and learning centers, places where we can be inspired by scientific discoveries, great works of art and artifacts from our history.”

Will you take advantage of this special? Let us know what museum you’d want to visit for free by leaving a comment below or on our Facebook page.
