This blog post is an update of a previous release from the History Center.
Imagine, if you will, it’s late December, you have a house full of out of town relatives who are not leaving until after the New Year, the kids are already bored with their new toys, and the adults are beyond the point of restlessness. What better way to make the time fly than to visit three of Fort Wayne’s favorite, entertaining and educational venues!
The History Center, the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory and Science Central have an affordable way to experience these three wonderful sites. Through the Museum Dream Pass program, for only $14 per adult and $10 per child (children ages 2 and under are free), one can have unlimited access to these three family-oriented museums for up to seven days.
These three organizations also offer a reciprocal, triple membership package for only $125! “Triple members” not only receive all of the basic membership benefits for all three organizations, but save over 20% off the price of purchasing these three memberships individually. If this deal is not sweet enough, “triple members” are granted all of the reciprocal benefits awarded to three national museum partnership programs. This means that “triple members” can go to almost every corner of the country and find an educational site that honors this local membership.
The History Center is a partner in the national Time Travelers reciprocal program. Nearly 200 historical museums, historical sites and other venues share in the Time Travelers program, offering a range of benefits from free admission, to special discounts, to exclusive offerings. Current and future History Center members receive these benefits at no additional charge to their regular membership dues.
A few of the area organizations participating in the Time Travelers program include the Illinois State Museum, the Ohio Historical Society, the Chicago History Museum, the Detroit Historical Society and the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
Contact the History Center at 260-426-2882 or see the Time Travelers link on our website’s home page at www.fwhistorycenter.com for more information.
Additionally, “triple members” are automatically given membership in the American Horticultural Society (www.ahs.org) and the Association of Science-Technology Centers, Inc. (www.astc.org). These two additional partnerships each boast about 200 participating organizations, meaning that “triple members” receive benefits to 600 organizations nationwide. The Indianapolis Children’s Museum, Minnetrista, the Field Museum, COSI, and the Chicago, Cleveland and Toledo Botanical Gardens are but a few of the organizations offering benefits to “triple members”.
