Attention all museum lovers! On Sep. 23, you’ll have the opportunity to visit one of the many great Kansas museums for free, thanks to Smithsonian magazine.

These are only 15 of the 19 Kansas museums available for free admission, each of which offers a full day’s worth of exhibits and fun. Simply enter your full name, email address, and location in this online form, then choose the participating venue that you wish to attend. At that point, you will be redirected to a link containing a PDF that allows you and a guest to attend your selected venue for free.

While the ticket doesn’t cover any IMAX presentations or special paid-attendance events at participating locations, there are no strings attached to the free admission offer.

Tickets are available for museums in states across the country as well, so if there’s a museum outside of Kansas that you’re interested in checking out, you can check out the Museum Day Live! venues here.
