A quick reminder that Saturday, the 29th is Smithsonian Free Museum Day. I’ll remind you in the weekend list, but I thought you might like a little extra time to check out your choices. If you see a good one, you just register and print out your tickets. You are limited to one ticket per household, which admits two, so your best bet is probably to pay for the kiddos.
Now, a lot of the museums in this list also participate in other free entry programs, such as the library pass program and third Thursdays in Tacoma. My suggestion is you choose one that rarely offers discounts, like Fort Nisqually.
