National Museum Month

I can’t think of a better way to start off this month’s first blog post than to say that May is National Museum Month!

What better time is there than now to recognize the roles that museums play in our communities, especially with all of the recent excitement surrounding Presidential Libraries & Museums (i.e. the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.) My National Archives colleagues behind the blog, Prologue, have also created a wonderful overview of Presidential Library and Museum dedications–check it out in honor of National Museum Month!

The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum hopes that you’ll be able to make visiting us part of your plans this month. Again this year, the Carter Presidential Museum will participate in the Blue Star Museums program, which offers free admission for active-duty military and their immediate family members from May 27 (Memorial Day) to September 2 (Labor Day) of 2013.

In addition to Presidential Museums, I personally could spend hours (and I have) at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Which museums are your favorite ones to visit?
