Last Saturday was the last Free Second Saturday at Bakken Museum. Free days are nice for families who do not have a family-fun budget, but museums have to stay in business, too. So how do you balance your budget and still explore get to some of the awesome museums around town? Memberships.
Bakken has one of the more affordable memberships ($65 for a family membership), and they’ve started to add some exclusive events for members. For instance, this one coming up on Thursday, May 28th.
With assignments from FFTC, our entertainment schedule may be busier than most families’ calendars, but I believe its not a bad rule of thumb to pick one or two places to get an annual membership each year. Then you can switch it up (or not) the next year. Is Bakken membership the right fit for your family this year? You can read a little more about Gianna’s experience at the museum here.
