Museum Day

April 4

Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticket holders as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 16th Annual Museum Day.  This is a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C. based museums. Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity, and inclusion.

Tickets will be available to download starting February 27, 2020 at https://www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/venues/museum/vermilionville-living-history-museum-folklife-park/.  You don’t have to print your ticket out, just show us your ticket on your smartphones at the museum entrance. It’s that easy.

For Museum Day 2020, Vermilionville will showcase the “Watershed Exhibit” which introduces the dynamic interconnections of planetary heat distribution due to the seasons, seasonal weather phenomenon, the water cycle, the life cycle of plants and animals, the physics of watersheds, the effects of water on humanity, and the effects of humanity on water. You will also be able to find the “Bayou Vermilion River” exhibit on display in the Visitor’s Center focusing on how the Bayou Vermilion District works to keep the bayou clean and what you can do to help.

Vermilionville will also host a free walk-in guided tour of the historical village (1-2:30pm) focusing on the traditional culinary and healing gardens found on site as well as all-day interpretation throughout the museum focusing on Earth Optimism!
