Museum Quest 2019

This blog started 4 years ago today! I know a few of you have been wondering what the 2019 quest is and it is Museums! We have so many great outdoor locations we have covered and this quest takes us indoors.

This year's quest has been one that as a former teacher I have wanted to do for years, but didn't feel that my kids ages would work for it.  I start this quest with some question as to how it will work for my kids, but we are up for a challenge. Some of these are places we go often and have memberships for but many places are new to us. My goal is to visit some new places and share about others. We won't make it to all the ones on the list, but we will share what we do find.

I have included a list of resources where we found these at the bottom. As I get more information, it may not be practical to get to some of them because of time or cost.
