Enjoy free admission at Museum Day Live! SaturdayPosted by Sarah W on September 25, 2012
Saturday, September 29 is a great day to visit a museum in San Antonio and across the country. In the spirit and tradition of the Smithsonian Museum offering daily free admission, museums nationwide are opening their doors for Museum Day Live!
For San Antonionians, it means that we have a special chance to experience a Smithsonian exhibit up close and for free at the Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC). It’s as simple as going online, downloading and printing a ticket. Each ticket download is valid for two free admissions to the museum on the day of the event.
During regular museum hours from 9 am – 5 pm on Saturday, September 29, bring your printed Smithsonian ticket to the ITC and enjoy a free day of fun at the museum. Your family won’t want to miss the chance to see the Smithsonian travelling exhibit “IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas”, among the ITC’s other awesome exhibits.
Here’s a taste of the educational adventure awaiting you Saturday– the ITC exhibits include:
- IndiVisible: focusing on the intersection of African American and Native American cultures
- Made in Texas: highlighting the state’s contribution to the nation and world in technology, food ways, cultural contributions and consumer goods
- Timeless Texas Toys: showing the ingenuity and artistry of folk toys and the lessons they teach
- Bantu Eyez: Somali Bantu of Texas: showing portraits of San Antonio’s Somali Bantu refugees by photographer Cristina J. Sanchez
- And on the main exhibit floor, learn about more than 20 unique cultures that settled in Texas
It’s a great opportunity to share a day of learning and culture with your family downtown at the Institute of Texan Cultures. And especially if you’ve never been to the ITC before, this is the perfect chance to explore the history of the Lone Star State at the affordable price of…free.
