You gotta hand it to Smithsonian Magazine for giving us a good selection of places to visit for an educational outing during its Smithsonian Museum Day Live. The event, which offers free admission into an array of participating museums across the U.S., is happening on Saturday, Sept. 29.
Charlotte-area options include Carolina Raptor Center, Carolina’s Aviation Museum, Levine Museum of the New South, and Mint Museum (Randolph & Uptown locations). For other NC museums, click here.
There’s only one catch to the deal. Visitors must present a ticket voucher (requests can be made online and vouchers, good for two people, will be sent back via email) for each of the museums visited. Yeah, it’s a bit tedious, but remember it’s a free pass - and who doesn’t like having extra cash in their wallets?
