Free Museum Day This Saturday September 26!

In keeping with the Park West Gallery mission of connecting people with art and the artists who create it, we’re always on the lookout for fun art events that allow art-enthusiasts to enjoy a firsthand cultural experience. With that in mind, be sure to take advantage of this fabulous event on Saturday…

Smithsonian Free Museum Day
Saturday, September 26 is FREE Museum Day!
Sponsored by Smithsonian magazine, the annual event (now in it's 5th year), is a celebration of culture, learning and the dissemination of knowledge. Smithsonian’s Free Museum Day reflects the spirit of the magazine, and emulates the free-admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, DC-based properties. Doors will be open free of charge to Smithsonian magazine readers and visitors at museums and cultural institutions nationwide.

Last year, upwards of 200,000 people attended Museum Day, with all 50 states plus Puerto Rico represented by over 900 participating museums, including 84 Smithsonian affiliate museums. This year, the magazine expects to attract over 1,000 museums.
