Boost your culture quotient with a free museum visit. The annual Museum Day (Sept. 21.) sponsored by Smithsonian magazine offers travelers free tickets to participating museums in California and across the nation.
The deal : Tickets are free but you have to register online to download them. Each ticket is good for two visitors. In California, you could branch out and visit lesser-known museums such as the American Bookbinders Museum in San Francisco, the Cayucos History Museum in the central coastal town, or the National Steinbeck Center , which celebrates author John Steinbeck and his work, in Salinas. Eighty-eight museums in California are participating in the free day.
When : Good on Sept. 21 only.
More options: Closer to home, the Autry Museum of the American West in Griffith Park (usually $6 to $14 for tickets) and the Catalina Island Museum (usually $15 to $17) are participating in Museum Day.
