Can I download a ticket for more than one museum?

You may download one (1) ticket per email address. Choose wisely! There are no takebacks, once you select a museum, you will not be able to change your selection.

Do I need to print my Museum Day ticket?

Some museums require a printed ticket, others will allow you to show your ticket via a smartphone or tablet. Not sure? Check your ticket. Museums that require a printed ticket include an asterisk under the museum address stating, "*Printed ticket required."

I don’t have a printer. How do I get my ticket?

Not all museums require printed tickets. Your ticket and the museum profile will let you know if the museum you wish to attend requires a printed ticket. Local libraries and community centers are great places to print materials if you don’t own your own printer and the museum you are attending requires a printed ticket. Ask your librarian for assistance if you need help!
