Museum Day is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country provide free entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket. The Museum Day ticket provides free admission for two people on Saturday, September 22, 2018.
Rochester Museum & Science Center
Through 200 hands-on exhibits, spectacular shows, and authentic collections, you’ll uncover the wonders of our region, our world, and beyond. Make family memories through themed programs that spark interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Climb a wall, build robots, zap lasers, launch a catapult, and zoom through space—there’s so much to experience. The planetarium is closed for renovations until mid-December.
George Eastman Museum
Visitors to the Eastman Museum will not need to present a Museum Day ticket for free admission, as all visitors will be admitted for free during regular museum hours. Experience the photography exhibitions David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire and Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window, see the History of Photography Gallery, explore hands-on activities for all ages in the Discovery Room, and join us for the following activities throughout the day—all for free:
