If you ask the kiddos behind this blog, they are owed a trip to The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. And rightfully so. It’s been awhile since our last visit, and let’s be honest, this summer hasn’t been all that outdoor play friendly. Well, they’ll be happy to know that this mama who loves deals has found out that the Children’s Museum has a great list of events that are at a discounted rate this month. The information below was shared with me by US Family Guide – a great resource for parents trying to raise happy kids!
Fantasy Weekends (Saturdays & Sundays)
All Museum visitors dressed in a costume relating to the weekend’s theme receive $3 off admission:
Dress like an Alien, Monster or Space Hero- August 16-17
Dress like an Animal – August 23-24
Museum members park free (as space permits) and have a chance to win prizes.
Free Museum t-shirt to the first 200 children visiting the Museum
Child admission for children 2 and up is based on that day’s forecasted high temperature for Pittsburgh, PA, by the National Weather Service, as forecasted at 5:00 pm the previous day. e.g. 73 degrees = $7 child admission, 87 degrees = $8 child admission, etc.
