Thirty institutions will take part. Two will be half-priced. The Sacramento Zoo and FairytaleTown. The other 28 will be free and include Sutter's Fort, the State Railroad Museum, and the Crocker Art Museum as well as lesser-known options like the Museum of Medical History. All expect crowds:
Delta Pick Mello: "All the museums will see anywhere from 4-10 times what they normally get on a regular day."
