Can you believe it’s September!?? In less than one month, my littlest little will be TWO! Insane… But you know what September also means?! It means Smithsonian Magazine’s FREE MUSEUM DAY! I love that the Smithsonian Magazine practices this because it allows so many people to visit some amazing museums!!
When Ella was almost one, we utilized this as our FIRST ever visit to Conner Prairie. Now, if you follow us, you know how often we go to Conner Prairie these days. You know that we are there weekly it seems and we love love love it there! And it’s all thanks to this Smithsonian program!
Once a year, they offer FREE ADMISSION to participating museums and LUCKY US, there’s quite a few around here, including once again, Conner Prairie!
Another FREE MUSEUM included on their list that we’ve recently visited is the Museum of Miniatures and other Collectibles. You can see my recap on that visit here. It was adorable, and I wouldn’t mind going again!
Also included is the Indiana State Museum which is downtown here and we haven’t actually visited this museum outside of the IMAX and Peewinkles Puppet Studio. But, this might be a good one to check out too! I’m really debating what we’ll do!
SO, on SEPTEMBER 22nd, make sure you head on out to one of the participating museums near you because it’s a great way to (1) see if you like the museum and (2) enjoy a free day with the fam doing something new and different!
Make sure to hop over to Smithsonian Mag’s website to see a full list and maybe we will see you at the Museum!
