    Saturday September 27th is Free Museum Day Live! Each year, Smithsonian Magazine partners with museums across the country to present Museum Day Live, where you can visit participating venues for free. If you go to Smithsonian.com you can click on visit for free on right side under “Most Popular” and learn more about it. Have a great day!

    My public library offers free museum passes, good for up to 4 or 6 people, depending on the pass. Once the Jewish holidays are over, I'll reserve passes to various museums (the children's museum, the air and space museum, etc.) and take my son there. I prefer to to on our own, so we can see the museums at his pace, rather than going with a large homeschool group that likely includes much younger children.

    It can be hard to get the museum passes, since they're so popular- but since we can now request the passes for school days, we should have an easier time obtaining them.
