The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas - Deb­o­rah Fleck

Smith­so­nian mag­a­zine has des­ig­nated Satur­day as its 14th an­nual Mu­seum Day, an ini­tia­tive in which par­tic­i­pat­ing mu­se­ums across the United States open their doors for free to those who down­load a ticket.

The theme of this year’s Mu­seum Day is “Women Mak­ing His­tory,” hon­or­ing women in so­ci­ety who are trail­blaz­ers in the arts, sciences, in­no­va­tion and cul­ture and who em­bolden oth­ers to be pi­o­neers as well. Par­tic­i­pat­ing mu­se­ums are en­cour­aged to of­fer pro­gram­ming on this theme.

For a list of mu­se­ums, visit Smith­so­nian.com/mu­se­um­day/ search. One ticket is per­mit­ted per email. Each ticket grants the holder and one guest free ad­mis­sion.
