We hope you’re in the mood to learn something. This Sun., Sept. 18, almost three dozen museums in the Austin area will open their doors for free as part of Austin Museum Day.
The event has been taking place since 1998, and is accompanied by several special events. Here are a couple of spots on our to-visit list:
- Austin History Center | Kids will enjoy making zines and prints + checking out two new exhibits.
