Smithsonian Museum Day at the Whaling Museum

Smithsonian #MuseumDay is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity, hosted by Smithsonian magazine. This year’s theme is #YearOfMusic. The New Bedford Whaling Museum will join other participating museums and cultural institutions across the country to provide free entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket, which covers admission for two people on September 21. Enjoy music selected with Whaling Museum exhibitions in mind in our galleries throughout the day and performed by members of New Bedford Symphony Orchestra.These performances are funded by the Creative Commonwealth Initiative of the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts. PLUS hear original recorded music composed for #WhalesTodayLive – an event we hosted earlier this year. Downloadable Smithsonian Museum Day tickets are available beginning August 15 at
