A Great Way to Visit A Museum!

Planning a trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts? Want to check out many other local museums? Look no further than the Saline District Library where you can check out a Museum Adventure Pass to get into your favorite museums for free! It is a great way to have an excuse to go and you can save money while doing so. I always take home one painting (mentally) when I go to the museum. Try it for yourself by writing down the names of a few artists that catch your eye during your museum visit. Then, the next time you visit the library, look up books on those artists to read at home. This is a terrific way to engage students in history and connect with what you just experienced. Also, be sure to check out the Saline District Library website to see how you can “Be Creative”.
