Smithsonian sponsors Museum Day -

Saturday, September 30, 2006

This Saturday, September 30, 2006, - for one day only - over 400 museums across the United States will join the Smithsonian Institution and Smithsonian Magazine in their long-standing tradition of offering free admission to visitors. Venues that agree to participate will extend free admission for two people when presented with a downloaded Museum Day Admission Card. The admission cards are good for general admission for two on September 30 only, and are not valid for special exhibits, IMAX screenings or for use with any other offer. Some participating museums may already have a free admission policy year round and are participating in the "spirit" of the day.The nationwide event is presented in association with TIAA-CREF Financial Services

Participating Oregon museums include the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon (Eugene), the Oregon Historical Society (Portland), the Pittock Mansion (Portland), the Science Factory Children's Museum & Planetarium (Eugene), the ScienceWorks Hands on Museum (Ashland), the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History (Eugene), and the World Forestry Center's Discovery Museum (Portland).

It amazes me to this day that the Smithsonian remains a free museum. What a cool place.
