Other Ways to Save Money on Museum Admissions
I love Free Days and Discounts, but my definite favorites are Discover and Go (museum and attractions passes through our local libraries), Groupon and the Entertainment Book.
- Groupon: There are no service charges so the price you see is the price you pay. I always check Groupon when I am traveling.
- Entertainment Book: Great for coupons for dining and family fun with both a printed book for local stuff and electronic version that gives you access to discounts around the US. Go to Entertainment.com and you can view the coupons for your area before you buy. Plus with the electronic version you can reuse certain coupons more than once!
