md_2019_logo_altHilo, HI – 9/21/2019 – The Lyman Museum will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders on Saturday, September 21, 2019 as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 15th annual Museum Day, a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, DC-based museums.
Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity, and inclusion. Over 250,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and Museum Day 2019 is expected to attract more museum goers than ever before.
This year, Museum Day celebrates the Smithsonian Year of Music, an institution-wide initiative celebrating the Smithsonian’s vast musical collections and resources through 365 days of music-related programming. Music is not only a reflection of human creativity and innovation, but also a key method of communication and cross-cultural exchange and understanding. The Smithsonian Year of Music crosses disciplines, bringing together music-related resources in art, history, culture, science, and education.
Museum Day tickets will be available for download at Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at the Lyman Museum, and at all participating venues, on September 21, 2019. One ticket per email address is permitted.
