Member Day 2012featured, to do — By Angie on July 18, 2012 at 8:53 am
We here at BirminghamMommy.com are BIG fans of becoming members to our local attractions, for many reasons. When you have kids it just makes sense in the long run to save your family money, also, we like to support our local businesses and becoming a member is a small way for you to do that, while getting great benefits in return!
Member Day is a great way to get out and explore some of the city’s best arts and culture. Visit a place you’ve been meaning to visit, check out something new, just because. If you’re a member of just one of the organizations listed below, this Saturday, the city is your oyster!
As a way of saying thanks to current members and supporters of arts and culture in the Birmingham region, area organizations have planned a special members-only day of free admission and family-friendly activities. One valid membership card and/or postcard invitation admits 2 adults and up to 4 children into absolutely any and every participating venue all day long. Plus enjoy special Member Day activities and performances throughout the day. (schedule is listed below.)
With 18 wonderfully varied groups of performers, museums and historical landmarks participating in Member Day, it’s one of the best ways to experience the incredible talents and unforgettable experiences offered by our region’s arts and cultural organizations—all in one day!
