Children's and science museums nationwide now number over 243 and provide opportunities for learning. Forty-one states and the District of Columbia participate in a reciprocity program which means a year's membership at one museum allows free or reduced entry fees at others taking part. NC museums that participate in this program are The Health Adventure in Asheville and the Schiele Museum of Natural History and Planetarium in Gastonia. The article also provides a URL for NC museums that emphasize interactivity and hands-on learning.
