Several Oklahoma City tourist attractions will celebrate the city’s 125th birthday today by offering free admission to city residents.

Visitors should bring identification or a water bill to prove Oklahoma City residency, reports NewsOK.com.

Participating venues include Science Museum Oklahoma, Henry Overholser Mansion, Red Earth Museum, the American Banjo Museum, Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, ASA Hall of Fame complex and the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory at Myriad Gardens.

City officials had earlier announced free admission would be open to all who visited the venues, but announced the residency requirement on Monday, according to NewsOK.com.
