A museum admission card is available in the magazine’s September 2009 issue, or can be filled out and downloaded from Imiloa also offers free monthly evening programs the third Saturday of every month as part of the International Year of Astronomy 2009.

“Free admission, through Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day and the International Year of Astronomy 2009 programs, is a fantastic opportunity for people to experience everything that we have to offer,” said Kaiu Kimura, associate director at Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii. “Imiloa’s hands-on astronomy exhibits, cultural displays, 3D theaters and planetarium shows are fun for the whole family.”

Throughout the year, Imiloa is also celebrating the International Year of Astronomy 2009 with free monthly Maunakea Lecture Series Talks.  

Visit Imiloa at 7 p.m. on the third Saturday of every month to learn about the latest research from the Maunakea observatories in Hawaii. Guest astronomers from the observatories provide insights on the night sky. 

This is Smithsonian magazine’s fifth annual Museum Day, when museums and cultural institutions nationwide open their doors free of charge to Smithsonian magazine readers and visitors. 

A celebration of culture, learning and the dissemination of knowledge, the Museum Day event reflects the spirit of the magazine, and emulates the free-admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, DC-based properties.
