Philadelphia’s ‘Free Museum Days’ Are Back: Here’s What To Know

For 16 days Philly museums are hosting free or pay-what-you-wish admissions! Free Museum Days are the perfect opportunity to visit as many Philly museums as possible for pretty much nothing.

This event is a part of Wawa Welcome to America festival, a celebration of America’s history that kicked off June 19 with the commemoration of Juneteenth and will end July 4th with Independence Day. These festivities are meant to bring awareness to the rich history of our country because what better way to learn about history than through museums? With real artifacts and in-depth information about the past, museums are a symbol of history that visitors of all ages can discover and learn from.

This year, 14 cultural institutions are participating in this event. Only on particular days and between certain times will the admissions be free or for a donation. Here is the list of museums and their particular day and time:

Timed entry tickets must be reserved in advance and masks may be recommended or required to enter certain museums. So make sure to pre-register and enjoy yourself!
