Tickets are limited so, as always, your best bet is to reserve your tickets ASAP. How do you go about doing that? All you have to do is visit the Smithsonian website, click “get a ticket” and enter the requested information and your ticket will be sent to your email. Easy as pie, right?

Keep in mind each email address can request one ticket that includes admission for two. What’s more, free admission is offered at tons of museums around the country on the 17th so if you’re not in Seattle or have family elsewhere be sure to check out where else you can visit. With that, enjoy!
