1. Tools of the trade: One of my favorite tips for taking kids to a museum includes a special tool you can pack in your purse! Check it out in my FamilyFun video tip:

2. Teacher’s toolbox: Many museum websites have a resource section for teachers, so I like to peek at what is offered and get some good ideas to keep the kids engaged. Often the information is organized by grade, so I make sure to look at what is appropriate for my kids’ ages.

3. Inspired visits: My kids like the movie “Night at the Museum,” so to get excited for our family trips, we will watch the movie or read a book that was set in a museum, such as “The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler” by E.L Kongisburg. For a list of other books with museum references, click here!

4. Postcard scavenger hunt: Pick out a couple of postcards from the museum shop and see if you can find the works of art or attractions in the museum. The postcards become a great souvenir of your visit.

5. Reciprocity: Many museums have joined forces throughout the country. Membership to one might give you access to others either free or at a reduced rate. Your membership might also give you discounts in the shop and on food and beverages. Membership has its rewards!
