Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ray Bradbury's birthday with free admission to the American Writers Museum!

FREE ADMISSION: Ray Bradbury’s Centennial

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ray Bradbury’s birthday with us! Admission is free all day long so you can explore all of our engaging exhibits and learn more about Bradbury and more iconic American writers. Plus, get a sneak peek of our upcoming exhibit Ray Bradbury: Inextinguishable, set to open in early 2021. Tickets are not required to be booked in advance.

On August 22, Bradbury’s typewriter, currently featured in our Tools of the Trade exhibit, will be on display along with copies of Fahrenheit 451 in various languages, showcasing the worldwide impact of Bradbury’s work. Stop by and see these fascinating items up close and learn more about Ray Bradbury: Inextinguishable.

Featuring original manuscripts, personal items and the typewriter and desk that Bradbury wrote many of his acclaimed works on, visitors to the exhibit will see the science fiction legend in a whole new light and understand the breadth of his influence on writers in the United States and across the world.

We will also be accepting donations for our charity partners on this day. During the month of August, $1 of every ticket sold will go towards our friends at Storycatchers Theatre and Brown Books & Paintbrushes. On this Free Admission Day we will accept donations on behalf of these organizations and we encourage visitors to make a contribution if you can.

The event is finished.
