Free Admission to Museums

This is a pretty exciting find. Thanks to the folks at Target you and your family can enjoy free admission to over 40 world-class museums across the U.S. Unfortunately there isn't any listed here in Virginia, but hey if you're traveling or know anyone living in these areas this is great news.

I think I'll be taking advantage of the one in D.C.
