Watching the Jelly Fish at Mote Marine in Sarasota County.
We have a membership to a local museum that we had actually bid on at silent auction event. Now that summer time is here, we have been looking for indoor activities to do for when it is just way too hot or raining. And since we live in Florida, there is a pretty good chance that we will get one or the other.
So a friend of mine Margaret was talking about Museum Reciprocity, which is when a museum pass can be used at another local or national museum and admittance is FREE or discounted. I knew that I could get into another museum in the area for FREE, but I thought it was the only one. Since my friend had been researching memberships, she directed me to a hidden link at the main website of the museum that I had a membership at, and I found out that I could go to a ton of places in my area for FREE.

Here are some quick links to the national database of Museums with Reciprocal Agreements:
North American Reciprocal Museums
Smithsonian Zoos and Aquariums

If you are interested in getting a membership to a local museum, ask them for their Reciprocal List. Also ask them what their local reciprocal agreements are. You may end up saving A LOT more than you will ever spend.
What is your favorite Museum? Does it have reciprocal agreements? I would love to hear your comments!
