As usually I found some inexpensive (and some free) things to do in our free time.
The New York State Museum in Albany is free to the public. We usually like to donate a few dollars when we visit, but $5 is well worth it.

Garrett enjoyed the train.

There is also the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, MA. Because we have a membership to our local Museum of Science we got the member rate at the museum here. Most museums do have a passport program that will allow you to use your membership from your home museum for other museums you may visit.
|That's a mighty large bone|
|Can you tell he loves fish?|
|Ben says Moray Eels are creepy|
Garrett had fun petting the Horseshoe crabs at the touch pool. I love how unafraid he is.
Even the gems and minerals are pretty cool to look at.
We all had fun walking around the museums. Even if you don't live in a larger area you can still have a family day out without breaking the bank.
