Visit the Newseum for Free & Save $24.27 vs. Regular Admission
Saturday, 23 September 2017, 08:45
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.
This is a perfect chance to save money while visiting any of the great museums that are participating and offering free admission. Our group will take advantage of this opportunity to visit the Newseum, and thus save $24.27 vs. the regular admission price (yes being in our group saves you money). : )
Please register for a ticket in advance - details below.
The museum opens at 9:00 am. However, let’s arrive at 8:45 am and have our traditional group “icebreaker” introductions and then get in line so we can have a quick start before the crowds arrive. We will hand out Meetup stickers for everyone so you will know who’s in our group.
We’ll start off on the top floor and work our way down. Robert and Michele plan on visiting the museum for 2-3 hours. You are welcome to arrive late, leave early, stay the whole day, whatever you like.
Registration: FREE – although you need to register for a ticket in advance, details to be published August 25th on the follow link: http://www.newseum.org/event/museum-day-live-2017/
Weather: This event is indoors, and therefore will take place rain or shine.
Metro Station: The Newseum is within walking distance of several Metro stations, the closest being the Archives - Navy Memorial - Penn Quarter Station.
Parking: There is limited paid parking throughout the area - however, please note metered time limits and restrictions, so you don’t get ticketed.
Meeting Point: The museum opens at 9:00 am. However, let’s arrive at 8:45 am and have our traditional group “icebreaker” introductions and then get in line so we can get off to a quick start before the crowds arrive.
