Smithsonian magazine has designated Saturday, September 21, 2019 as the 15th annual Museum Day, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States open their doors for free to those who download a branded ticket at  Each ticket grants the holder and one guest free admission to any participating museum on September 21, 2019. One ticket is permitted per email address.

Museums in all 50 states have already signed up to participate in Museum Day 2019, the largest event of its kind. More than 1,500 museums are expected to participate this year, including the Cedar Falls Historical Society's Ice House Museum. The Ice House Museum is the only museum in the U.S. that tells the story of ice harvesting in an original ice house. Try hands-on activities, watch videos, and learn about an international industry that brought fresh food to the world.
