Memorial Day weekend is upon us (with summer break just around the corner for many school-aged children) . . . that time of year when many parents start asking themselves, “What should I plan to do with my kids this summer?!”  Outings that are not only fun, but also educational are always a bonus as they help to keep learning skills sharp outside of the classroom.  Starting this Memorial Day weekend, and running through Labor Day, September 5, 2011, consider visiting one of more than 1,000 museums across the United States that have partnered with the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star Families to establish Blue Star Museums, an Operation Appreciation initiative.  Active duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel and their family members gain free admission at participating locations!  Simply click on the U.S. map to find a museum near you.  Discover all there is to see and learn right in your own neck of the woods!
