Free Museum Admission on May 18

It’s in honor of International Museum Day.

By Laura Dannen May 10, 2012


Museums across North America will offer free admission next Friday, May 18, in honor of the Association of Art Museum Directors’ (AAMD) Art Museum Day and International Museum Day. Since the dates coincide, I will now refer to the holiday as AAMDAMDIMD. To make things easier.

A full list of participating museums will be available soon on the AAMD website, but I was able to confirm today that both the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, and Seattle Asian Art Museum will offer free entry that day. Any other museums in the Seattle-Tacoma area that plan to participate? Let us know in the comments section below.

Exhibits on display:

The Brink: Andrew Dadson (Henry Art Gallery)

Gary Hill: Glossodelic Attractors (Henry Art Gallery)

Morning Serial: Webcomics Come to the Table (Henry Art Gallery)

Theaster Gates: The Listening Room (SAM downtown)

You can also plot a tour of 10 must-see masterpieces in Seattle, many of which are at SAM and the Henry.
