SANDUSKY — It's not often that you get free admission to one museum, let alone four. That, however, will be the case May 19 during International Museum Day.

The Eleutheros Cooke House, Follett House, Merry-Go-Round Museum, and Sandusky Maritime Museum will offer free admission, along with arts, crafts, and activities at each museum.

Cooke House will entertain with Victorian lawn games, including croquet and hoops rolls, while visitors to the Maritime Museum can make a paddleboat and take a boat ride.

The Merry-Go-Round Museum, 301 Jackson St., will offer the opportunity for budding artists to paint their own "horse." At the Follett House, guests will enjoy Victorian crafts.

The Sandusky Trolley will run between the four museums throughout the day. Visitors to all four museums will have an opportunity to win a "Museum Basket" with gift items from each organization.
