There's an old proverb that says, "The best things in life are free." While that may be true in many cases, you're still going to have to shell out some bucks to experience some of the fun things in life.
Anytime you check out a Broadway musical, go to a movie, or take in a sporting event, it's going to cost you some money. There's even a fee to get into most National Parks like the Grand Canyon or Big Bend.
That's why it's a good idea to watch for sales and special events that offer discounted or free admission. And boy do we have a doozy coming up. Museums all across the country are offering free general admission for just one day this fall. But you need to act fast.
Wanna check out a museum ... for free?
That's right, the Smithsonian's annual "Museum Day" event is coming up next month. September 22nd to be exact, which happens to be the first day of fall.
Museum Day is a one-day event in which over a thousand museums all across the U.S. offer free admission. Even though it is free to get in, you still need a ticket, and the number of free tickets are limited.
So you need to act now. But we have good news. You can make plans to attend your museum of choice and download the free tickets right now.
The Smithsonian has a page set up on its site that will let you find out which museums in the U.S. are participating. Find the one that you want to visit and click on the "Get A Ticket" button that you'll see right under the name of the museum.
But choose wisely. You are only allowed to get free tickets to one museum.
Participants are allowed to download one ticket per email address. The ticket provides free general admission on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, for two people.
Tap or click here to find out which museums are participating and to download your free tickets. If you have been thinking about checking out a museum, this is the perfect opportunity.
