In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket… for free.
New for March 2016 is a special edition of Museum Day Live!, providing an opportunity to the public, especially women and girls throughout the U.S. to enjoy and share in our nation’s dynamic heritage and cultural life.
Come shake hands with women’s history! Girls will present their heroines from 10 a.m. – 12 noon. Join Lisa Henry for The Love Lettering Project and listen to local diverse women leaders as they describe their obstacles and triumphs.
