Museum’s admission free on Saturday

Posted in:

The Museum of Western Art will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders on Saturday September 18, as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 17th annual Museum Day, a national celebration in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based museums.

The annual event allows museums, zoos and cultural centers from all 50 states to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day.

“We are honored to participate in this annual event”, says Darrell Beauchamp, Executive Director of the Museum of Western Art. “We are still in recovery mode from the pandemic and appreciate this national initiative to celebrate museums across the country.”

Earlier this year, The Museum of Western Art was named The Fifth Top Western Art Museum in the United States. By True West Magazine.

Ticketholders can visit between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Museum Day tickets are available for download at

Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 18, 2021. One ticket is permitted per email address.

A list of participating museums, which will be continually updated as more museums continue to register, can be found at MuseumDay.
