Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day | 12+ local museums participating!

Smithsonian Magazine’s 18th annual Museum Day will be celebrated Saturday, September 17, 2022 at more than 1,300 museums and cultural centers around the country. To take part, all you have to do is download a branded ticket and go!

There are more than 12 museums participating here in Tampa Bay including one of our favorite places to explore, the Tampa Bay History Center. This is the perfect time to check out the Treasure Seekers exhibit which tells the tales of Tampa Bay and Florida’s history of pirates, conquistadors and shipwrecks. There are even ways little kids can interact with the exhibit too, so it’s a great option for the whole family!

This year’s theme for the national event is ‘The American Experience’, a “celebration of boundless curiosity that grants access to the remarkable arts, culture, sciences, innovation, and history exhibits across the United States”.
