The Southeastern Railway Museum joins Smithsonian Magazine’s 13th Annual Museum Day Live!
Free Admission on September 23, 2017, with a Downloadable Museum Day Live! Ticket
The Southeastern Railway Museum will open its doors free of charge on Saturday September 23, 2017, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s thirteenth annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! ticket.
Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and inspiration. The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are. Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever before.
The Museum Day Live! ticket is available for download at SRM’s Museum Day Live! listing. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for themselves and one guest at participating venues on September 23, 2017. (Train rides are not included with the ticket.) One ticket per email address is permitted. For more information about Museum Day Live! 2017 and a full list of participating museums and cultural institutions, please visit Smithsonian.com/museumday.
