This month, you can visit your favorite museum or discover a new one -- for free! National Museum Day is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors at no charge to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket. Locally, you can enjoy free admission to dozens of museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Discovery Museums in Acton, the Children's Museum in Easton, Battleship Cove in Fall River, the EcoTarium in Worcester, and many more!
