Museums are a fun way to experience the state’s culture and art, especially when the price is right.

Smithsonian Magazine’s annual “Museum Day Live!” event on Saturday, September 24, offers free admission to participating institutions nationwide—and more than 40 of those museums are in Massachusetts alone. Those interested can sign up at smithsonianmag.com for free admission to the museum of your choice.
