It was back on the subway to the Aquarium today, this time to show Daddy the new shark and ray touch tank and enjoy a final members-only viewing before the crowds descend in the coming weeks. While certainly busier than Thursday's visit, the tank viewing was still intimate enough to get some good touches and for M to ask questions.
With our small city spaces, many city parents ask family members to give museum memberships in lieu of birthday and holiday gifts. Given the amount of time city homeschoolers spend in our local museums, these memberships are invaluable and quickly repay themselves. Members-only events like this week's touch tank "sneak preview" add to the value of these memberships and provide additional learning opportunities for city homeschoolers.
