In honor of Free Museum Day promoted by Smithsonian Magazine, some of our local museums will offer free admission on Saturday, September 25th! This day was created to be known as a celebration of culture, learning, and the spreading of knowledge; Museum Day is a day each year when museums and cultural institutions nationwide open their doors to the public free of charge.
This is a day that you can plan a vacation right in your own back yard. Explore the local attractions that you haven't ever visited or haven't visited for years. Plan a fun day for you and your family to enjoy...free! St. Joseph is home to 15 area museums that all work together to illustrate the rich history that has played a significant role in the development of our amazing community...enjoy it!!!
