Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, one of the Connecticut attractions that will be participating in this Saturday's program.

If you're a fan of Connecticut museums or have been thinking about visiting one, then circle Saturday, September 28 on your calendar—admission will be free that day to more than a dozen state museums.

The free pass comes courtesy of Smithsonian Magazine's annual Museum Day Live! program, which will extend to more than 1,500 museums from across the nation. All you have to do is go to the Museum Day Live! site and download a free ticket (good for two people), print it out and present it upon entering the facility.

As with any good deal, there are a few caveats:

  • Only an official Museum Day Live! ticket is eligible for free entry. Official tickets can be found on the Museum Day Live! website soon.
  • One ticket per household, for two people.
  • A ticket will gain entry to only one of the participating museums, excluding parking and special events and exhibits.
  • If museum reaches capacity, it has the right to limit the number of guests until space becomes avaliable.

Here are the Connecticut museums participating.

Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford
Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Hartford
Jonathan Trumbull Jr. House, Lebanon
