20th Annual Sacramento Museum Day – February 3, 2018
With 26 museums and local destinations participating during this celebratory year, the 20th Annual Sacramento Museum Day is proudly presented by Sutter Health and takes place on Saturday, February 3, 2018. To the delight of the greater Sacramento area community, the participating local museums will open their doors to offer free or half-priced admission to the community from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Most of the museums will offer free admission whereas two destinations located in residential areas – the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town – will offer half-priced admission to offset parking and traffic control costs. Due to the popularity of Sacramento Museum Day, some locations must limit the number of admissions for safety reasons. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. but note the last guests will be admitted at 4 p.m. More detailed information about participating museums, addresses, limitations, suggested parking and public transit options is available at www.sacmuseums.org (click on “News & Events”), or by calling Visit California at (916) 808-7777.
