More than two dozen museums and attractions around Sacramento will offer free or half-priced entry on February 1.

A popular tradition, it’s the 16th annual Sacramento Museum Day. This year, two new museums have joined the list; the California Statewide Museum Collections Center and the Center for Sacramento History.

A total of 28 museums will be free from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town are offering half-price admission, to help offset parking control and security costs.

Many of the participating museums are within walking distance, or accessible by public transportation.

For more information about admission, locations and parking options, head to, or call the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau at (916) 808-7777.
