entry_way_-clock-199170906_largeThe All Things Oz Museum will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016, as a part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 12th annual Museum Day Live. On this day only, participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian institution’s Washington DC based facilities which offer free admission every day and open their doors free to those who download a Museum Day Live ticket.

Inclusive by design, the event represents Smithsonian’s commitment to make learning and the spread of knowledge accessible to everyone. Last year’s event drew over 200.000 participants, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum goers than ever before.

“The opportunity to bring people in and show them some of the history of Central New York is important to us, and participating with the Smithsonian on this event helps us reach a new audience that might have otherwise passed us by”, said foundation President Dennis Kulis. “The legacy of the American fairy tale “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” started right here in the village of Chittenango, and the impact the story has had on Americana is undeniable, and now people from all over the area have a chance to come and see a wonderful exhibit based on one of our most famous native sons for free.”

The Museum is operated by the International L. Frank Baum & All Things Oz Historical Foundation.

They are a 501(c)3 non-profit and they operate the annual Oz-Stravaganza festival and are renovating the Baum-Neal house in Syracuse as well.

The Museum Day Live ticket is available for download at Smithsonian.com/museumday. Visitors who present the museum day live ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on Sept. 24. One ticket per household is permitted; however, the All Things Oz museum will admit any number of people free that day.
