Celebrate 529 Day!
What are you doing to celebrate 529 College Savings Day?  At the Museum we are celebrating with FREE admission for the first 529 visitors courtesy of Bright Start College Savings.  Stop by to play on May 29 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Learn how opening a Bright Start 529 account can prepare your child for the future.  Starting an account takes as little as $25 and about 15 minutes when you enroll online.  A 529 plan allows you to invest in your child’s future education, whether it be college, trade or vocational school.  Visit to learn how you can get started.

And our friends at Bright Start College Savings are giving away 5 Amazon Kindle Fire tablets to kick off summer reading fun!

Enter the 529 College Savings Day Sweets by 5/29 for your chance to win!
