It’s time to plan for the ever-popular Sacramento Museum Day! Mark you calendars and make your plans now for the 16th Annual Sacramento Museum Day on Saturday, February 1, 2014. This year, 30 area museums will be welcoming you, your family and friends all day long. Admission to most museums is FREE, with just a couple of museums offering half-price admission. Chipotle, one of the sponsors of Sacramento Museum Day will be passing out coupons to visitors, good for FREE children’s meals as well.

In addition to free or reduced-cost admission, some museums will also have some special activities going on for all to enjoy. The Aerospace Museum will have an open cockpit day, a children’s art contest and the Tuskeegee Airmen exhibit, and the Heidrick Ag History Center in Woodland will have a special selection of “big monster tractors” on display. As always, I encourage you to plan ahead and go early, as many of the museum fill up to capacity quickly on Museum Day.
