The Navy SEAL Museum will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders this Saturday, September 22, as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 14th Annual Museum Day, a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based museums.
Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity, and inclusion. Over 250,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event; Museum Day 2018 is expected to attract more museumgoers than ever before.
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 emboldening others to be pioneers as well.
“Frogmen have long been pioneers in their own right,” said Rick Kaiser, Navy SEAL Museum Executive Director. “Museums remain the mainstay of history and culture preservation, and Museum Day supports this important role, allowing for greater pubic accessibility.”
Museum Day tickets are available for download at Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 22, 2018. One ticket is permitted per email address.
