Attention Girl Scout troop leaders – Who wants to visit a museum with their troop for free? Visiting a museum with your troop can be a rewarding experience; fun and educational! It can get expensive so wouldn’t you like to visit a museum with your troop for free? Because Now you can!

The 15th annual free Museum Day is coming Saturday, September 21, 2019. This is the perfect opportunity for Girl Scouts (Frontier Girls, Cub Scouts, and BSA troops too!) to visit a museum for free because scouts love being frugal!

Hosted by Smithsonian magazine, this is an annual national event when participating museums, gardens, zoos, and cultural institutions open their doors to anyone with a free Museum Day ticket.  Keep reading to find out how to get your free ticket.

Did I mention FREE?!?!

With over 1,500 participating museums you are sure to find one in your area. A full list can be found here. You can filter by zip code, state, or the name of the place you want to visit.

You’ll need to register and print out official Museum Day tickets in advance.  All you’ll need is your email address and name to download your free ticket. You are allowed to download one free ticket per email address and each free ticket provides general admission for two people on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

Registration is now open. So start making plans for your troop to visit a museum for free! Find participating museums and request your ticket here.
