Saving Sanity With Museum Passes

We went to the museum today. It was wonderful. They boys had a great time playing. Drew and Blake (my friends' little boy I babysit, he's 2) only really fought over shovels in the rock (foam rock) area which means it was a very good day. We really needed the break from our normal routine. They love all the new toys, new games and especially the new people to play with.

The Cincinnati Museum Center passes are an annual thing we have been doing in our family. They really are a great investment. Our passes go on sale the weekend before Christmas for B1G1. We found friends that want to get a membership too and we each only paid half price, just $70 for the museum and parking for an entire year! The passes reciprocate to over 150 other museums in the US, meaning when we travel we just check to see if there is a museum in the area on our list and we can take the kids for FREE!

If you live in the Cincinnati Area, check out the Museum Center here. If you live elsewhere, be sure to check out museums in your area. It's a great change of pace for the kids, and they are learning as they play!

Happy Savings!
