Save The Date: Museum Day, September 25, 2010

Over 1,300 museums are set to participate in this year's Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day. Started 6 years ago by Smithsonian Magazine to shed light on some oft-overlooked museums, both big and small, Museum Day offers free entry into an array of museums nationwide. Providing museum-goers with the perfect opportunity to check out that one random museum just outside town or to discover a museum that's flown too far under the radar, Museum Day is September 25th this year and our slideshow below highlights some of our picks. Tell us which ones you're most interested in checking out in the comments.

Please note - if you're heading out to a museum on September 25th, you need to download and fill out a museum day ticket beforehand. Click here to get yours.
