Cave Creek Museum and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West will be part of Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on Sat., Sept. 17 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day is an annual celebration of curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums, like the Cave Creek Museum and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, provide free entry to anyone who presents a Museum Day ticket (up to two people). Tickets may be acquired by visiting smithsonianmag.com.
“This event provides the public with a first peek at new exhibits,” says Cave Creek Museum’s Executive Director Evelyn Johnson. “Museum lovers from around the Valley come to check out what we have and plan for a return trip if they have downloaded passes to evaluate several museums,” adds Johnson. “Or they stay to see our exhibits thoroughly. It is a fun day to show off history and suggest upcoming events.”
Museum Day represents a national commitment beyond getting visitors through museum doors – it acts as a springboard to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly school-aged children, and those in underrepresented communities.
The Cave Creek Museum is located at 6140 E. Skyline Dr.., Cave Creek and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West is located at 3830 N. Marshall Way, Scottsdale.
