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 Stoneybrook Steeplechase, now in its 60th year, moved to the Carolina Horse Park in Hoke County in 2001.

Last year's event topped 7,500 visitors and the event organizers hope to top that this year.
