Museum Day Live! will be the eighth annual event celebrating education through the nation’s wide array of museums and cultural institutions. For one day only, participating locations across the country will emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities. The program encourages learning and the dissemination of knowledge nationwide. Last year’s event drew over 350,000 museum-goers to over 1,400 museums.

Starting today, museum-goers can go to to download tickets for Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day Live! Tickets grant free admission for two people per household to participating museums on Saturday, September 29, 2012. In Wyoming a number of institutions are participating.
