Fairytale Town is on the list!?

The 13th Annual Sacramento Museum Day will be on Saturday, February 5, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All participating museums close at 5 p.m. with the last guests admitted at 4 p.m.

From this latimes.com article:

Though it’s tempting to museum-hop until you drop, realistically you’ll be able to squeeze in only two or three museums on the free day. The museum association also offers the following advice…Expect a wait at the more popular sites such as the Crocker Art Museum, the Sacramento Zoo and the Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park. Park your car and use a free shuttle that services most of the museums on the list.

There are 26 museums participating in this year’s event so this is a good opportunity to visit a museum less traveled.

    Short lines at the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical History Museum (Elvas Ave). As of last year they didn’t participate in the “free” day. Rumor was that they want to “keep out the Irish.”

    Reminder that this event will be held on Saturday.

    On second thought, maybe paying your way isn’t such a bad idea.

    Traffic outside of the Sacramento Zoo stretched for miles as families took advantage of the 13th Annual Free Museum Day on Saturday.

    Miles? Really?

    That’s ridonculous. At least it wasn’t raining. But yeah, really miles? That seems hard to believe, although parking there can be a joke even on a normal weekend day when the weather is nice.
