If you’d rather spend your Saturday indoors, you can also visit one of more than 800 museums nationwide on the 26th, which is also Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day. Just pick a museum, print out this admission card and go!

One card covers you and a guest, but unfortunately it can’t be used for multiple museum visits or entry to special exhibits or IMAX screenings. Only one card can be used per household, according to Smithsonian magazine.
