Scientists argue that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's deal: for $25, you get a basic membership, which includes one year of unlimited admission, special discounts, and more, to the Schoolhouse Children's Museum and Learning Center in Boynton Beach (a $50 value). The basic membership is good for one named adult and children ages 2–17 of the same household.
Two floors of interactive exhibits help the Schoolhouse Children's Museum and Learning Center teach its pint-sized patrons about the history of the South Florida region. Mini milk-chuggers can indulge their lactose leanings at the Dairy Days exhibit, where they can take a turn milking a cow, whereas tractor-crazy tots might head for the Farmhouse, where they can role-play to learn about local agri-history. A 15-foot model of the Jupiter Lighthouse sports an animatronic clone of pioneer Hannibal Pierce that talks to visiting children during museum hours and sings baritone in the after-hours choir.
In addition to granting you and your kin a year of unlimited admission to the Schoolhouse Children's Museum and Learning Center, your basic membership bestows you with the sorts of fringe benefits normally reserved for movie stars and celebrity baristas, including a 10 percent discount at the museum's gift shop, a 25 percent discount on birthday-party packages, reduced rates for special programs, and free access to nine additional children's cultural institutions affiliated with the Florida Association of Museums. Extend the admission privileges with up to two additional adults for an extra $10 each.
Must activate by December 15, 2010. Valid for extending current membership.
