Boston Museum of Science

One of the benefits of working for eight days straight on the summit, is the six days off the summit we have to relax and travel. This past off week, I took advantage of my time off and visited the Boston Museum of Science; one of the participating science centers of the ASTC Passport Program. You see, with my Observatory membership, not only can I access Premium Content and other material from the Mount Washington Observatory, but I get free admission to over 300 science museums who participate in the ASTC Passport Program. And the Boston Museum of Science just happens to be a participating member! Simply presenting my membership card at the ticket counter gave me free admission; but not just for myself. With my Family/Dual level membership, I was able to bring up to three family members with me.

The expanse of exhibits they have was incredible; so many, that deciding what my second favorite exhibit would be was quite difficult. However, if I had to choose, it would likely be Dinosaurs: Modeling the Mesozoic. My first choice though, was easy. Inside the Blue Wing on the lower lever, is the WeatherWise exhibit with a very special display all about the Mount Washington Observatory! For a museum that sees so many visitors, it was great to see a display about our unique weather. If you have yet to visit the Boston Museum of Science with your Observatory membership, I strongly suggest taking a fun, educational day for some exploration. If you don’t have an Observatory Membership, I urge you to support the Mount Washington Observatory and take advantage of all the great benefits a membership offers.
