Sticker Shock

I am spoiled living in Washington, DC. There are many museums under the Smithsonian Institution that one can visit for free (yes, I know, not technically free because paid for by our tax dollars). People come from around the world to Washington DC and visit the Smithsonian Museums. Sadly, some locals take these museums for granted and do not bother to visit (I am not part of that crowd).

Today visited a friend and her daughter in Philadelphia. We spent a few hours at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (you know, those famous steps Sylvester Stallone sprinted up in the movie “Rocky.”)

When we entered the museum, the cost of admission for one adult ticket – $16. Yikes! Wow, that’s expensive.

I already appreciated the Smithsonian Museums but even more so now.
