Sacramento Museum Day


We probably don’t need to tell you that Sacramento is chockfull of fun and fascinating things to do on the daily, but there’s only one time a year that all the best cultural sites open their doors for free or significantly reduced admission: Sacramento Museum Day on Saturday, Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Nearly 25 of our capital’s coolest cultural destinations—including the Aerospace Museum of California, the Sacramento Children’s Museum, the Discovery Museum, the State Indian Museum, Sutter’s Fort, Fairytale Town and many, many others—will be open for ogling thanks to a partnership between the Sacramento Association of Museums and the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau. Sacramento abounds with art, history, science and wildlife, so what are you waiting for? Jump in!

Due to the popularity of Sacramento Museum Day, some locations must limit the number of admissions for safety reasons, so event coordinators suggest selecting no more than two or three sites to visit to maximize enjoyment. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. but last guests will be admitted at 4 p.m.
