Chieftains will once again participate in the annual Museum Day Live! event on Saturday, September 24th. In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket… for free. The Museum Day Live! ticket provides free admission for two people during regular operating hours on the 24th from 10am-5pm.

This is the third year that Chieftains Museum has participated in the Museum Day Live! event. The museum’s theme for the free event this year is “Ancient Natives of the Southeast.” Visitors with event tickets will not only get free admission to the museum, but can complete crafts related to early Native Americans in our area, including drawing your own pottery designs, making your own cave art, and creating a gorget, the ornaments that early Native Americans wore around their neck.

One ticket is permitted per household, per email address. To download a ticket or for more information about this event and a list of participating museums and cultural institutions, please visit
