Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day

septembre 18

Bayou Vermilion District’s Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park JOINS SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE’S 17TH ANNUAL MUSEUM DAY

Free Admission on September 18, 2021 with a downloadable Museum Day ticket

Saturday, September 18th, 2021—Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticketholders on Saturday September 18, 2021 as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 17th annual Museum Day, a national celebration of boundless curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based museums.

The annual event allows museums, zoos and cultural centers from all 50 states to emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day. This year’s event is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company.

Museum Day goes 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. It represents a national commitment to access, equity and inclusion.

With many public spaces being shut down for a year or more, Museum Day 2021 celebrates the reopening of museums after long closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s theme, Experience America, represents the return to, and resurgence of, our country’s diverse cultural experiences, in the safest possible way. While tickets will be free of charge, participating museums will have safety precautions in place for this year’s event so guests can safely and comfortably enjoy their experience.

La mission de Vermilionville est d'accroître l'appréciation de l'histoire, de la culture et des ressources naturelles des Amérindiens, des Acadiens, des Créoles et des peuples d'ascendance africaine dans la région d'Attakapas jusqu'à la fin des années 1800. Grâce à l'interprétation et à la conservation historiques le long du Bayou Vermilion, nous nous efforçons d'éduquer les clients sur les interactions de ces groupes et les liens entre la vie folklorique passée et contemporaine, permettant ainsi aux clients d'appliquer ces leçons de nos histoires partagées.

For Museum Day 2021, 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.

Vermilionville will also showcase an exhibition titled “Museums: From Curiosities to Caretakers of Culture.” This exhibition will look at the history of museums in general and of Vermilionville. It will provide education on the important and prestige of the American Association of Museums’ Accreditation, as well as the role Vermilionville plays in the cultural educational landscape of the Attakapas region. the Living History museum’s permanent exhibitions will demonstrate the “Caretakers of Culture,” while Wunderkammers (Cabinets of Curiosities) will be curated and installed to demonstrate the “Curiosities” part of museum history.

Museum Day tickets will be available for download at beginning August 18, 2021. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 18, 2021. One ticket is permitted per email address. A list of participating museums, which will be continually updated as more museums continue to register, can be found at
