ecoXplorer Museum Day Ticket Tips
Your Smithsonian Museum Day ticket will be e-mailed, and you must print it and bring it with you for free entry.
Each ticket is good for two people, and does not include special exhibits, parking or showings such as IMAX.
If you are a group of more than two, register with different email addresses for the two-ticket limit.
Whether you are part of group or not, go early in the day, since museums have the right to make you wait in favor of paying customers if space reaches capacity.
Smithsonian Media includes its flagship publication, Smithsonian magazine, Air & Space magazine, Smithsonian Books, and the Smithsonian Media Digital Network.
Smithsonian Media also oversees the Smithsonian Institution’s interest in the Smithsonian Channel. It is a division of Smithsonian Enterprises, the revenue-generating business unit of the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex, consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park, and nine research facilities.
