Free tickets to MoPOP for Saturday


By Diane Hettrick

Smithsonian.com is promoting Museum Day by listing all the museums in the United States that offer two tickets for free admission today, September 21, 2019.

Here is the webpage - but don't click whatever is at the top of the page - it's an ad

It's a lot of fun to check for local museums - I never quite thought about how many we have. The list is a great addition to Fun Things to Do and Day Excursion lists.

There are two ways to use the site - either do a ZIP code search or allow the site to know your location.

It lists all the museums with a link for tickets. It also shows hours of operation - and it even lists all the free museums. 

Warning - the site has so many pop-up ads that all you have to do is breath on it and you'll get a new screen trying to sell you something. Just back out or close the ad window.

Here are the ones that are close by:
  • Connections Museum, Seattle (no, I never heard of it either).
  • Edmonds Historical Museum, Edmonds
  • Frye Art Museum, Seattle
  • Museum of History and Industry, Seattle
  • Museum of Pop Culture, Seattle
  • National Nordic Museum, Seattle (Ballard, of course)
  • Seattle Art Museum, Seattle
  • The Museum of Flight, Seattle
  • Wing Luke Museum, Seattle

Of course, no ticket is required to visit the Shoreline Historical Museum at N 185th and Linden in Shoreline.

I didn't go south of Seattle, north of Snohomish county, or east of the lake. I didn't list anything that required riding a ferry.

A lot of these museums would be a fun thing to do if you were camping somewhere. If you go to Tacoma, they have a lot of very high quality museums.
