One of the fun things we did as a family was go on many homeschooling field trips, but even with the reduced fees that most places charge, the fees still added up. In addition to admission, the parking fees were outrageous.
Several years ago, we came across the ASTC Travel Passport. This membership allows admission and free parking to over 250 science centers and history museums around the country.
For information, call your nearest museum and ask for more information. We have not purchased a new pass for several years, but the price used to be $60 for a family membership. Twenty dollars cheaper than the membership to our local COSI science museum, yet they honored our passes. Very reasonable and affordable! We just included it in our homeschool curriculum budget.
Do you know of any programs similar to the ASTC Travel Passport? If so, please share.
