Access To Statewide Museums Free, In September

This September, a number of statewide museums and galleries will participate in Smithsonian Magazine's nationwide Museum Day promotion. On the 27th of that month, those who download free admission cards off the Smithsonian web site will gain access to any number of participating venues.

Last year, 450 museums and cultural institutions took part in the event, which emulates the Smithsonian's year-round free admission policy. The Smithsonian is located in Washington D.C. In Hawaii, participants include the Honolulu Academy of Art, Bishop Museum, Mission Houses Museum, Queen Emma Summer Palace, Louis Pohl Gallery of Fine Art, ARTS at Mark's Garage, Contemporary Museum, East-West Center, Japanese Cultural Center, and Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo.
