Michigan Home School Savings:
Get Free Field Trips This Year
From Macy's!

Home schooling in Michigan just got better! How about going on some great Michigan home school field trips this year, for free?

We just returned from our weekly library trip to gather up our educational resources for another awesome home school week, and came back with six passes to the Ford Rouge Factory Tour – for free!

Art that inspires and engages, hands-on science that excites and educates, history and culture that bring past and present Michigan to life – all of these and more are waiting for you at your Detroit regional public library!

The Museum Adventure Pass: Your Ticket to Michigan Home School Fun!

The Museum Adventure Pass is a program between 162 metro area libraries and more than 20 local arts and cultural organizations, provides area library card holders free passes to participating local museums, cultural centers and historical sites.

Library users living in Macomb, Oakland, Livingston, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties, with a valid library card from one of the three participating library co-op systems (The Detroit Library Cooperative, The Library Network or the Suburban Library Cooperative, plus the Holly Township Library) can check out a Museum Adventure Pass at any of the 162 Greater Detroit public library locations in those counties.

Grab your library cards, your kids and run, don't walk to your local library. Then visit some great Michigan home school field trip destinations for free!

The Museum Adventure Pass: How it works.

Just use your library card to receive a Museum Adventure Pass, presented by Macy’s, and get free admission for two or four, depending on location, at one of these Detroit area arts and cultural institutions:

Arab American National Museum
Automotive Hall of Fame
Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center
Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History
Detroit Children’s Museum
Detroit Historical Museum
The Detroit Institute of Arts
Dossin Great Lakes Museum

When you visit your local library, you will see an eye-catching Museum Adventure Pass display. There will be five laminated check out passes for each location. Choose one and then bring your pass up to the clerk. She will scan it and give you a pass for the museum. You will need to use it within the week, otherwise it expires one week after check out.

You can check out one pass per week per card.

The museum admission pass is handed in at the box office of the participating organization for free admission for two or four people. Each museum adventure pass expires within one week of the checkout date.

The Michigan home school field trip destination we chose first, was the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. Each of my children checked out a pass also, which is valid for two admissions. So, we have enough for our family and a friend can join us too!

With The Museum Adventure Pass you can visit some great Michigan home school field trip destinations and enrich your child's home education for free!
