Free Museum Day! Saturday, September 26, 2009

Ok, ok, I promised bikes and bipolar, not art, but I have to be true to myself. Tomorrow, 9/26, is the Smithsonian's Free Museum Day! Over 800 museums nation wide are offering free admission tomorrow, just go to the site linked here, check out the participating museums near you and download a free admission card.

Hey, museums are expensive these days -- even if you only go to one once or twice a year, take advantage of this opportunity. And while I'm at it, remember that many museums have a free day or evening every month -- First Friday, Third Thursday, whatever. Check it out and go see some art, science, history or whatever. Have fun!

Don't forget that the Smithsonians themselves are free every day of the year, and only closed Dec. 25. So come visit DC!

Stephen, thanks for this happy alert. When I lived in Munich, a great rainy-day option (and to be truthful, an excuse) from biking was to visit the wealth of great museums in that city.

I'd come in dripping from the bike ride down and be warmed and dried by the inspiring artworks around me. Other clientele may have looked askance at the soggy figure amongst them, but it was always a special day for me.

Thanks,
