Every year Smithsonian Magazine sponsors a day where everyone can get into a participating museum for free. Love it!

Here are some participating Illinois venues that we may have to check out. I’ve listed the normal general admission price. These will all be FREE. The list is long so check their website for more participating attractions.

Klehm, Arboretum & Botanic Garden

How does it work?

You’ll need to go to their website and sign up. Then you’ll receive an email with instructions to print the ticket and voila! Free access to the museum of your choice.
