  1. I have searched and can’t find a printable flyer for my students to use to ride RT to the free museum day. It doesn’t seem accessible from this site or from RTs.
    Help!

    • Hi Shireen,

      We just emailed you the flyer. The flyer is also now in this listing’s Image Gallery.

      All the best,

  2. So all you have to do is , get there to the museum you want to see and that’s it?
    Thanks

    • Hi Rodrigo,

      Yes! Just attend one (or many!) of the participating museums between the hours of 10am-5pm. Admission is free.

      Please head to your last museum before 4pm as museums will stop guests from entering by 4pm. (You can stay at that museum until 5pm though.)

      Have fun on the first!

  3. Usually the zoo or fairy tale town are participants. Are they not doing discounted admission this year?

    • Hi there,

      Fairytale Town and the Sacramento Zoo are not participating this year and are not offering discount admission in 2020. However, this year, local restaurants near participating museums are offering discounts on meals. To learn more, visit https://www.sacmuseums.org/museumday.

      Best of luck,

    • Hi there,

      Crocker Art Museum is not participating in Free Museum Day this year.

      However, know that every third Sunday of the month is Pay What You Wish Day at the Crocker Art Museum!

      Thank you,

  5. Are there any parking charges, if I park on the street?

    • Hi Angie,

      Yes, parking enforcement is still in effect on Free Museum Day. Note: You can ride SacRT Buses or Light Rail for free when presenting the flyer in this event listing’s Event Gallery or by clicking the link here: https://www.facebook.com/SacramentoRT/photos/a.78059277355/10157825077042356/?type=3&theater

  6. Hello. If you could please email me a copy of the RTD flyer that would be much appreciated. As the website seems to be down and that was my plan for taking my family to the museum day… Thanks in advance 😁
