LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 19, 2019
Flight Path Museum at LAX will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticket holders on Saturday September 21, 2019 as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 15th annual Museum Day, a national celebration in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington D.C.-based museums.
More than 450,000 tickets were downloaded for last year’s event. Museum Day 2019 is expected to attract more museum goers than ever before.
This year, Museum Day will celebrate the Smithsonian Year of Music, an institution-wide initiative celebrating the Smithsonian’s vast musical collections and resources. The Smithsonian Year of Music crosses disciplines, bringing together music-related resources in art, history, culture, science and education.
“Flight Path welcomes this opportunity to join in the nationwide celebration of Museum Day,” said Agnes Huff, PhD, Flight Path Museum president. “Located on the tarmac at LAX, we encourage local residents, visitors and everyone with a passion for aviation and aerospace history to take this opportunity to come visit Flight Path Museum for free.”
