No Admission Cost to Delta Blues Museum on Museum Day Live!

Delta Blues Museum will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, September 23, 2017, as part of Smithsonian Magazine‘s thirteenth annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! ticket. 

Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and inspiration. The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are. Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever before.

“As the world’s first museum devoted entirely to the Blues, we are excited to partner with the world’s largest museum and research complex–the Smithsonian–in this important initiative,” offers Delta Blues Museum Director Shelley Ritter. “‘Museum Day Live’ offers a great opportunity for people to visit those museums they haven’t yet experienced.  Museums are relevant, dynamic cultural centers, and ‘Museum Day Live’ helps to promote this message.”

The Museum Day Live! ticket is available for download at here. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 23, 2017. One ticket per email address is permitted. For more information about Museum Day Live! 2017 and a full list of participating museums and cultural institutions, please visit here
