Sacramento Museum Day
Saturday, February 4, 10:00AM-5:00PM
see website for list of participating museums

To the delight of the greater Sacramento area community, 26 participating local museums will offer free or half-priced admission from 10:00AM-5:00PM on Saturday, February 4, 2017 for the 19th annual Museum Day event. Most of the museums will offer free admission, whereas two destinations located in residential areas - the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town - will offer half-priced admission to offset parking control and security costs.

Coordinated by the
Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) and the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, Sacramento Museum Day is a popular cultural tradition designed to encourage all members of the community to experience the Capital City’s incredible wealth of art, history, science and wildlife - at little or no cost.  Many of the museums are within walking distance of each other and easily accessible via public transportation. Event coordinators suggest that guests plan to visit no more than two or three different museums on this day in order to allow adequate time to enjoy the experience and to travel between individual sites.
