There's no better deal than free for helping make family travel affordable. On Sept. 24, you and one guest can get in free to one of hundreds of museums across the United States.
The annual Museum Day even is sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine (of the famously free Smithsonian Museums).
Click here to view the list of 2011 participating museums. You can view by address or, if you'll be traveling that weekend, by state, to see which museums have chosen to participate in Museum Day. And, please note, the free ticket doesn't guarantee you entry to the museum. If the venue reaches capacity, museum officials could turn you away or make you wait until the crowds thin a bit. So, once you print your free admission ticket, make plans to arrive early to ensure you get inside.
Now, for the fine print:
