Sacramento museums open doors for free

By From page B2 | February 01, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Museum Day is coming up once again Saturday.

It’s the day where it becomes economically feasible to day trip throughout the Sacramento area and visit as many museums as possible – for free. The two exceptions are the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town, which are half price. There are 30 museums or venues participating.

Notable museums included are the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento, Crocker Art Museum, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park, Discovery Museum Science and Space Center, the Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park and the State Indian Museum. They will welcome visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – last guests are admitted at 4 p.m.

Many venues are within walking distance of each other and easily accessible by public transportation.

This is the 15th annual event, which started to encourage people to experience Sacramento’s art, history, science and wildlife.

The day is presented by the Sacramento Association of Museums with help from the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau.
