This weekend, Lubbock’s museums will participate in a publication’s annual museum day.

The Buddy Holly Center and the Silent Wings Museum will join participating museums and institutions nationwide and offer free admission to all taking part in Smithsonian Magazine’s 7th Annual Museum Day this Saturday.

Admission is only free with a Museum Day admission card, which is obtained at no cost by visiting www.smithsonian.com/museumday.

Over 300,000 museum attendees have participated in Museum Day in the past, at 1,300 venues in all 50 states.

Museum day venues emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s facilities based in Washington, D.C.
