Take a Field Trip to a Free Museum

In this current economy school districts around the country are trying to cut costs wherever they can. Often one of the first budget items to get cut is field trip expenditures. Therefore, teachers who would like to take students on field trips have to find ways to do it on the cheap. This morning I found a resource, through Fred Delventhal's blog, that can help teachers find museums to which they can take their students for free. Free Museums is a wiki listing museums that offer free admission. The wiki is arranged by state and is accompanied by a key indicating the conditions of free admission to each museum. Links to each museum are provided in the list.
