ON TRAVEL ~ Free Museum Day...



Edition #47

Thirteen Things about THE BUMBLES -

and, in honor of Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on 09/26/09, some of the participating museums we'd love to visit for FREE this weekend...

1. A Presidential Library - JFK Presidential Library & Museum in Boston, MA

2. Freedom & Diversity - National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, PA

3. The History of Golf - USGA Museum & Arnold Palmer Center for Golf History in Far Hills, NJ

4. Musical History from an Icon - Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock, TX

5. Planes, Trains & Automobile - Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, MO

6. Art with a View - J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA

7. The Little White House - Harry S. Truman Little White House in Key West, FL

8. Down Home Music - Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN

9. Photography Heaven - George Eastman House in Rochester, NY

10. All things Rock & Roll - Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH

11. Visit the Smithsonian site to find a museum or park in your area participating on Saturday and print your free admission pass which covers yourself and a guest

12. If you can't take advantage of the promotion this Saturday, here are some tips for finding great deals on attractions anytime

13. Then again, sometimes all you have to do is know where to go to get a free lesson from Mother Nature


The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. What do you do? Write Thirteen things about yourself, summarize your week in one entry, make it easy for other bloggers to get to know you on a weekly basis. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is not only encouraged, it is part of being a Thursday Thirteener! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun!

You had better get busy! What a fun list! It is a great reminder that there are so many fun things to do that come at the right price. Our entertainment on the weekends is usually the kids' basketball and football games. Alot of excitement and screaming for free!

Oh man, I wish we didn't have forty-eleven things going on this weekend! Our Columbus, OH museums are participating as well. We have the Jack Nicklaus Museum here, too! He was born and raised in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington.

Fun list! Love visiting museums, but rarely get to them. Would love to return to DC and visit/revisit some of those on the National Mall.

I only wish my dad and my 2 brothers had lived to see the Sox win that first (in 80 years) World Series.

The word MUSE in MUSEUM jumps out at me.

This is something we have been looking forward to. We have narrowed it to 2 participating museums in our area that we are not members of. Decisions, decisions, decisions...

I love museums - that is neat that they are having free admission - since they can be rather expensive. Hope you can make it to some of them. Maybe I'll check out some foliage this weekend.

Thanks for the info. on the Jeff Probst blog. I checked it out yest. Don't tell me what happened last night - lol. I tape it usually and watch it over the weekend with my husband.
