Where can you dig for prehistoric dinosaur bones, take a whirlwind trip through the solar system, or measure yourself against a brave medieval knight? At your local museum, of course!
Museums – whether science, space, natural history, decorative arts, or history – are an integral part of the learning process for students of all ages. Particularly for a child with a predominately visual learning style, a museum can take a subject from the dusty pages of a book and make it simply come alive!
In the spirit of the Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission every day, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket… FREE.
The Museum Day Live! ticket provides free admission for two people. In Delaware, the event includes:
