Museums For All

by Early Math Counts

This past winter I was asked to be on the Advisory Board of the Chicago Children’s Museum, located downtown at Navy Pier.  I had been serving on the Tinkering Board of the museum for the three years previous, so this was new to me.  Yesterday, we had our board meeting and lo and behold, I learned about a whole new opportunity for children, families, and child care providers

Did you know that any Illinois family receiving either WIC or the Link Card qualifies for admission to the museum for up to 6 people for three dollars?  That’s right.  You read me correctly.  That is three dollars for the group, not per person.  All you have to do is show your card, have a child under 15 years old with you and pay three dollars to spend the day at the museum.  You can’t beat that.
