Behringer-Crawford to offer free admission to all Smithsonian Museum Day ticket holders Sept. 19

Behringer-Crawford Museum will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticket holders on Sunday, September 19, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 17th annual Museum Day celebration.

The event, which the Smithsonian bills as an “annual celebration of boundless curiosity,” allows museums, zoos and cultural centers from all 50 states to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day.

Museum Day goes beyond getting visitors through museum doors, according to the Smithsonian: “It acts as a springboard to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly school-aged children and those in underrepresented communities. It represents a national commitment to access, equity and inclusion.”

Museum Day tickets are available for download at Smithsonianmag.com. Once there, click on “Get a Ticket,” then enter “Behringer-Crawford Museum” in the “Find a Museum” box. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at BCM between 1 and 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 19, 2021. One ticket is permitted per email address.

For more information, go to www.bcmuseum.org, email info@bcmuseum.org or call 859-491-4003.
