The Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day ticket provides free admission for two people (per email address).

Museum Day is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country provide entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket. GCV&M will have a full day of programs and demonstrations for all ages and interests, join us for this special celebration of museums! 

Join us for a shape-note sing! Before the Civil War, shape-note music was an important part of the social and religious life of rural America. Shape-note singing schools, held by itinerant singing masters in cabins, schools, and churches, taught thousands of families the rudiments of music in energetic a cappella three- and four-part harmony that delighted or dismayed all who heard it. If you are an experienced shape-note singer, would like to try it, or just want to listen and see what it's all about, we invite you to join us from 1-4 PM for a shape-note sing. The Shape-note sing takes place on Smithsonian Day so admission is free with your admission coupon! 

Visit the Smithsonian's website here for details and to register for tickets. 

Enjoy a bonus hour as the museum is open until 5:00pm on Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day. (When registering for GCV&M tickets on the Smithsonian's website, please disregard the information in the Symbols box.)

If you have any trouble with the Smithsonian website, simply reference Smithsonian Day at the GCV&M Admission booth the day of the event to receive your free admission ticket.
