Reasons To Visit A Museum

Reasons To Visit A Museum

Have you ever wanted to visit a museum? We love museums and here are our favorite Reasons To Visit A Museum!  Now is a great time to consider visiting a museum because there are many positive reasons to do so. Museums are around to help bring an educational stance to the world. We can’t be there for every moment in history, so museums help bring a little bit of that history to use.  They are not only great for education and family time, they can be a great date!  Check out our favorite reasons to visit a museum!

Reasons To Visit A Museum

Reason To Visit A Museum


One of the main reasons for visiting a museum is the educational aspect it brings. Whether you homeschool and need an educational field trip, or you just want to see what a specific era in history was all about, a museum is the way to go.  Local museums can help you teach your kids about different types of artwork, as well as expose your family to specific famous artists.  They can also house many historical elements and artifacts.


It’s easy to get caught up in our lives and the everyday “woes” we face. However, museums provide a level of inspiration that you just can’t find anywhere else. Take the “Holocaust” museum for example. You can’t help but leave that museum feeling more inspired and ready to appreciate life a little more than before.  They are a great place to find inspiration with your family.

Family Time

If you’re looking for a great way to spend time with your family and friends, consider heading to a museum to make lasting memories. Learning, talking, and discovering together can help create memories and a museum provides that basis.

Low Cost

Most museums have days that are free for visitors, which is a great reason to visit. If you don’t have to spend a lot of money, then why not indulge? I don’t know too many people who can say no to a ‘low cost’ form of entertainment. Not to mention, you’ll learn a lot along the way!

Community Support

Museums rely on the help of the community to keep their legacy alive. When you visit a local museum, you are supporting the local community. Why not take the time to visit a museum in your community to show your support?

We love visiting our local museums.  From looking at beautiful artwork, to getting rough and tumble in exhibits in our local children’s museums, there are dozens of reasons to visit a museum by yourself or as a family.

Share Your #BeautyStory By Saving On Dove Products At Walgreens!

This is a sponsored post for Dove on behalf of Global Influence

Through the years I have experimented with tons of various soaps, makeup and products on my skin.  When I was asked by Global Influence to share my #BeautyStory it was easy to realize that Dove was going to be a huge part of that.  From the time I was a little girl spending the night at my Granny and Papa’s house, I remember the bar of Dove soap in the tray in her bathroom.  When you are 5 or 6 years old, sitting on the stool watching your Granny wash her face and use her night cream is just one of those rights of passage.  We all did it, and one thing stuck in my mind – it was that bar of soap.


Share Your #BeautyStory By Saving On Dove Products At Walgreens

My Granny had a few specific things she used in her beauty routine, and since she had some of the clearest and wrinkle free skin I have ever witnessed, I figured it was good enough for me.  Her routine started with a bar of Dove soap as not only a body cleanser, but specifically as what she used on her face each day.  Sensitive Skin Dove Beauty Bar is still in my daily routine, as are a multitude of other great Dove products.  I exclusively use Dove Advanced Car Antiperspirant/Deodorant, Dove Beauty Bar and Dove Shampoo and Conditioner as they are the best quality and most affordable for me.  As you can see, Dove is a huge part of my personal beauty story.

Right now through May 30th, 2015 when you spend over $15 on Dove products at Walgreens, you will receive 3,000 Balance Rewards Points! That is a great bonus to your Rewards Points Balance for a product you already love and use!

When you go by your local Walgreens or Duane Reade store this month, you can check in at the Beauty Counter to find out about the great month long beauty event.  This includes a chance to pick up a $2.00 off coupon for Dove products in store!  These coupons are valid through 7/24/15 so you have plenty of time to use them!  Some stores even have a free Dove sample while supplies last!

Check out this great video for more information about Dove and how you can share your #BeautyStory too!


Thanks to Dove and Global Influence for the chance to share this sponsored post about a brand and product we already love.  All opinions within are my own.
