Last week my family of four visited the Children’s Museum of Richmond. I won’t lie, admission fees sometimes deter me, but C-MOR offers an annual pass for families, and not just families of four. Families of five, six, eight, … however many children you have in your household, you’re all covered for one year for $100. Admission for the four of us for one day cost $32. That annual pass was an easy sell. We’ll recoup that money in just a few visits, and when we travel across Virginia, we can get into other children’s museums for free! Not to mention a 10% discount on gift shop purchases when the inevitable, “Can I have it? Puhleeaase?” rings out.
Whether you’re a Virginia resident or a frequent visitor to Virginia who is looking for ways to stretch a dollar and still have fun, the annual family pass at the Children’s Museum of Richmond is a great option to consider. Virginia sister museums offering recirprocal admission under the pass are:
- Amazement Square, the Rightmire Children’s Museum in Lynchburg
- Children’s Museum of Virginia in Portsmouth
- Harrisonburg Children’s Museum
- Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum in Winchester
- Virginia Discovery Museum in Charlottesville
In addition to these Virginia museums offering reciprocal admission, there are more than 100 others nationwide that your family can take advantage of as well.
Have fun and save a dollar or two doing it! To begin planning your Virginia vacation, visit www.Virginia.org or call 1-800-Visit-VA to request your very own Virginia is for Lovers Travel Guide.
