BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum will open its doors free of charge Saturday as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day, an initiative in which participating museums across the U.S. emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, .D.C-based facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day ticket.

Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and inspiration.

The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are.

Visitors who present the Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at The Brinton. One ticket per email address is permitted.

In addition to Museum Day, The Brinton will host Birding at The Brinton beginning at 9 a.m. Those planning to participate in the monthly bird walk should meet in the museum parking lot.

The Brinton Museum is located at 239 Brinton Road in Big Horn.
