You LIVE mere steps (okay in some cases maybe a few hundred thousand steps) from some of the greatest and most importantly free museums in the country. But when’s the last time you actually went to the American History Museum? That 6th-grade field trip does not count.

Too many tourists you say? Well, we have the PERFECT opportunity for you to romp around the Instagrammers paradise completely without any tourists around. Just you, your friends, and Biz Markie (really though)

Anyway’s we thought, while we’re celebrating FREEDOM and AMERICA -we’d give you the chance to win a FREE pair of tickets! In fact, we’re giving you FIVE CHANCES.
