This Saturday is Smithsonian’s Museum Day Live! – an annual event where museums around the country admit visitors for free. But the Smithsonian museums are always free, you say? You’re right, but the famous institution is making this true for many more museums nationwide for one day only.

Go to the official website to print out a ticket good for free admission for 2 people at one of the many participating museums. From LA’s GRAMMY Museum (usually $12.95/person) to the New York City Fire Museum ($8/person) and plenty in between, visit a museum you might have overlooked before for free.

If you happen to be in DC, though, and near the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, stop by on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. for “Rock On! A Family Festival on Rocks and Geology,” an educational event where participants will learn about rocks and minerals on the Earth and in the solar system. No worries — it’s also free!
