September 27, 2008 is Museum Day, coordinated by the Smithsonian Museum. Museums and cultural venues throughout the country will offer free admission (with a printed ticket). What is great about this day is that it is a Saturday. While a number of museums have a free admission day, these days are usually during the week, which makes it nearly impossible for the entire family to go. Museum Day is always on a Saturday.
