Which Museum to get our PASS to this year??


So every June for the past 3 years I have gotten and renewed our Museum of Science Pass in Boston. Now that we are living in Illinois I see that we get reciprocity to all of the following Museums in Illinois using our Museum of Boston Science Pass:

SciTech Hands-On Museum

630-859-3434

Miller Park Zoo

309-434-2250

The Science Center of Southern Illinois

618-529-5431

Orpheum Children’s Science Museum

217-352-5895

Lincoln Park Zoo

312-742-2076     10% disc food, etc.

Museum of Science and Industry

773-684-9844

Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

773-755-5100

Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum

312-922-7827

The Field Museum of Natural History

312-922-9410

International Museum of Surgical Science

312-642-6502

Scovill Zoo

217-421-7435     50% discount

Children’s Museum of Illinois

217-423-5437

Children’s Discovery Museum

309-433-3444

Peoria Riverfront Museum      (formerly Lakeview Museum)

309-686-7000     Checks IDs

Peoria Zoo

309-681-3500

Burpee Museum of Natural History

815-965-3433

Discovery Center Museum

815-963-6769     Checks IDs

Henson Robinson Zoo

217-585-1821

Lake County Discovery Museum

847-968-3400

Cosley Zoo

630-665-5534  25% discount gift shop

So in looking at all of the above FREE choices for 2 adults and all our children (we have 3) to go to the above museums with reciprocity from MOS  Boston I think for $155/year we’ll continue to buy the MOS Boston Pass BECAUSE we get the 5 person pass which gets in 2 adults and 3 kids to Boston and we’ll continue to go there every year once or twice. If we get the Museum of Science and Industry pass here and use it in Boston we’ll pay for one child PLUS its not reciprocal to as much here as the MOS pass is. So that is what we decided. 🙂
