Kingman Museum will offer planetarium shows and seasonal star talks FREE of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders on Saturday, September 22, 2018 as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 14th 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.
The theme of this year’s Museum Day is Women Making History, honoring women in society who are trailblazers in the arts, sciences, innovation and culture, and emboldening others to be pioneers as well. We will have our Women at NASA videos and posters on display.
Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for a planetarium show for two. One ticket per email address. Tickets are available for download at Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay. We will accept both printed copies and tickets from mobile devices. #MuseumDay #WomenMakingHistory
