Get your Go Ask Mom natural sciences museum membership discount today!
Posted June 5, 2014
Yep! Another reminder ... today is the day when you can take advantage of Go Ask Mom discount on a family membership at the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences.
Today, June 5, you can get a family membership for $55 instead of $70 to the downtown Raleigh museum. All you need to do is ask for the "Go Ask Mom 5" special at the museum box office or museum stores or enter the code GOASKMOM5 when purchasing a family membership online. Again, this is good only today, June 5!
Regular admission to the natural sciences museum is, of course, free. And that led to a question on our Facebook page about why you'd even need a membership since you can just walk in without paying admission.
Here's why my family loves our membership to the museum. Members get:
- Free admission to special exhibits including the current Rainforest Adventure, a fun exhibit for kids ages 3 to 12 and their adults. Members also can look forward to free admission to the next big special exhibit: The World's Largest Dinosaurs, which opens in October. Members can see these exhibits multiple times. My family has been to Rainforest Adventure several times. We went to the Birds of Paradise exhibit countless times as well.
- Perks such as discounts on birthday parties; discounts and priority registration for summer camps (which I highly recommend); a discount at the museum store; special events for members; and hospitality areas at some of the museum's big events such as BugFest.
- Free or discounted membership to more than 300 science museums around the world, which have come in handy more than a few times on my family's own vacations.
Another bonus: Your $55 family membership is fully tax deductible.
