Museums are (virtually) Open!

Some of the highlights of any school year is field trips. With so many kids learning remotely many of our local museums have taken travel out of the equation. Even better you can visit faraway museums that you would never have been able to reach on a day trip in your school bus. (Unless it was the Magic School Bus!). Best yet, no need to pack a lunch.
