Western Pa. institutions join in on Museum Day Live

“Smithsonian” magazine’s annual Museum Day Live! free-admission day is scheduled for March 12.

The Alle-Kiski Valley Historical Society in Tarentum, the Senator John John Heinz History Center in the Strip District and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg will participate, along with museums, zoos, aquariums parks and other cultural entities nationwide.

This year’s theme is “Inspiring Women and Girls of Color,” in conjunction with Women’s History Month and a campaign to reach women and girls of color in underserved communities.

The free ticket is good for two guests per household, per address. If a ticketholder brings more than one guest, the additional guests will pay full admission.

People interested in attending should visit to register for an account and then request a ticket to one participating venue.

The ticket will be available to download immediately or up to March 12. The ticket must printed to present for free admission or be accessible on a mobile device.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
