Free admission Saturday to Three Rivers Museum, historic home

Both are part of Smithsonian promotion

Three Rivers Museum and the Thomas-Foreman Historic Home will charge no admission Saturday as part of Smithsonian magazine’s ninth annual Museum Day Live! The nationwide event offers free admission to visitors who present a Museum Day Live! ticket at a participating museum or cultural institution.

The event represents the Smithsonian’s commitment to make learning and the spread of knowledge accessible to all, giving museums in every state the opportunity to emulate the admission policy of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. Last year’s event had more than 400,000 participants, and organizers expect record high participation this year, according to a media release.

Tickets can be downloaded for printing at www.Smithsonian.com/museumday. Each ticket is good for admission for two people. One ticket is permitted per household, per email address.

Three Rivers Museum, 220 Elgin St., and the Thomas-Foreman Historic Home, 1419 W. Okmulgee Ave., comprise Muskogee’s Regional Heritage Center. Both will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Information: (918) 686-6624 or www.3riversmuseum.com.
