The Museum at Bethel Woods Offers Free Admission on Smithsonian Magazine’s 6th Annual Museum Day

Bethel, NY – On Saturday, September 25, 2010, The Museum at Bethel Woods will participate in the sixth annual Museum Day, presented by Toyota on behalf of the redesigned 2011 Avalon.

The Museum at Bethel Woods will join participating museums and cultural institutions nationwide to open their doors free of charge to all visitors who download the Museum Day Ticket from Smithsonian.com. A journey to celebrate our world’s dynamic heritage and cultural life, participating Museum Day venues emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities.

Museum Day 2010 is poised to be the largest to date, outdoing last year’s record-breaking event. Over 300,000 museum-goers and 1,300 venues in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico participated in Museum Day 2009. Last year, two million visitors logged on to www.smithsonian.com/museumday to learn more about the program.
