Oklahoma History Center Joins Smithsonian Magazine’s 14th Annual Museum Day

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma History Center is proud to participate in the 14th annual Smithsonian magazine Museum Day on Saturday, September 22, 2018. The Oklahoma History Center, located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City, is one of the participating museums that will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders on that day to emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-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.

Museum Day tickets will be available for download at www.Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay

beginning September 10. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 22, 2018. One ticket is permitted per email address. A list of participating museums, which will be continually updated as more museums register, can be found at www.Smithsonian.com/MuseumDay/Search.

Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity and inclusion. More than 250,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and Museum Day 2018 is expected to attract more museumgoers than ever before.
