KUSA - With a chance of rain in the forecast Saturday, it may be the perfect time to stay indoors and check out one of Colorado’s many museums.
You and a friend can even do so for free thanks to a joint sponsorship with Smithsonian magazine and Microsoft.
All you need to do is enter you name and valid email address. From there, you’ll be prompted to select your state and museum of choice.
Then it’s as easy as hitting ‘download ticket.’
And if you have plans to travel out of the state, that’s cool too. Over 1,250 museums across the country are participating, so there might even be one on your road trip path.
Pro tip: Double down on your experience by having your museum buddy enter their own information for another museum. That means you could see two museums in one day, for free!
