Membership Reduction

June 12th, 2008 at 08:58 am

Last year, our first summer in our new town, we purchased a combined membership for the zoo, the science center and a histroy farm. Total cost $199. I'm pretty sure it was worth our money as we went mulitiple times.

This year we are opting out of the zoo and science center. We've been zoo members for many years and as our girls have grown it doesn't seem to be as interesting to them. The science center doesn't change their exhibits frequently, so we are also opting out of that one.

We've decided to stick with the history farm membership for $70. I will buy it this weekend when my best friend and her family come for a visit.

The history farm is one of those unique things about our city and is really educational with hand on chores for kids to experience. There are also several other out of town family members who have expressed an interest in going. We will save quite a bit with a membership if all those out of town visitors want to go.

What is your take on memberships? Do you use them or avoid them? Which ones do you use the most?

    We do one a year - last year it was the arboretum that is near us (great kids garden/hiking trails/summer concert program and walking plays). It expired and my parents got a family plus which includes all of us.

    This year we will return to the zoo. My younger kids will love it - haven't had one since the older group was small.

    Sounds like a good plan to me - your sticking with the farm one.

    I was thinking about visiting the zoo today- but it rained. I may go next weekend, and take the teenagers.
