Cheap Thrills: Museum Day
Press Release: Roanoke Times
September 27, 2007
If you've been meaning to visit a particular museum but never seem to find the time, consider going on Saturday. If you go to smithsonian.com and fill out a short form (or if you're already a Smithsonian magazine subscriber), you'll get free admission to a long list of participating museums across the country on that day.
In our neck of the woods, that means you'll save the $9 admission to Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest in Forest, $7 at the Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville or $6 at the Stonewall Jackson House in Lexington.
You should know that the admission card covers you and one guest, and only one admission card per household is allowed.
For details and the entire list of participating museums, go to smithsonianmag.com/museum day.
