We're taking a little bit of a break this Thanksgiving weekend here at Go Ask Mom, but if you're looking for things to do with the family, check our post earlier this week listing 20 ideas.

And here are the holiday hours for popular Triangle destinations ... really, it's pretty simple:

All state museums, Kidzu Children's Museum, Marbles Kids Museum and the Museum of Life and Science are closed on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. (Marbles' IMAX theater is open Thursday with "Fantastic Beasts 2D").

They reopen Friday and operate on normal schedules. That includes Morehead Planetarium and Science Center in Chapel Hill, which offers a full slate of planetarium shows and more on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
