The Lightner Museum will be participating in Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on Saturday, September 22 by offering Free admission. On this day, only participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities, which offer free admission everyday, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day ticket.
Inclusive by design, the event represents Smithsonian’s commitment to make learning and the spread of knowledge accessible to everyone. Each pre-registered ticket allows admission for two people. Pre-registration can be obtained on the Smithsonian Magazine website with your e-mail address at https://www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/museum-day-2018/
Tickets will be welcomed all day, beginning at 9:00am with last admission at 4:30pm. Special Museum Day activities for families will take place from 11:00am to 2:00pm, throughout the museum. Museum docents will be on hand to show visitors pictures of the historic Alcazar Hotel’s spa facilities and pool. Additionally a special scavenger hunt created by the Lightner Museum volunteers will take visitors through the open galleries. Music demonstrations on our Victorian instruments will be at 11:00am and 2:00pm.
