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 Sept. 24, opening their doors to the public for free.

This 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 is to present a Museum Day Live! ticket at the door on Saturday. You can obtain a ticket by creating an account on the Museum Day Live! website’s “Tickets” page.

Creating an account is free, and the only information you must provide is your email address and the name of the museum you wish to visit for free on Saturday.

Immediately after creating an account, you will receive an email from Smithsonian magazine with a link to your downloadable ticket, according to the Museum Day Live! website.

Also note that one ticket is good for two free 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 this Museum Day Live!, visit the “Find a Museum” page.
