(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Museums across St. Joseph opened their doors for the annual Smithsonian Museum day.

One day every year, museums across the country waive their admission charges to give more families the opportunity to explore their neighborhood museums.

Saturday at the Remington Nature Center, kids got the chance to do scavenger hunts to keep their minds engaged. 

Staff said every family should have the chance to experience their local museums.

"It's a great opportunity to come and enjoy our museums," Sarah Elder, manager Remington Nature Center said. "We've had hundreds of people come in today."

The Smithsonian magazine sponsors this event every year, all of the local museums took part in the free museum day.
