I love the Children's Museum of Phoenix. I don't love the price for taking my whole family though ($9 x 6 persons = $54 to be exact) so I'm always looking for a good deal to this establishment. This summer was twins get in free day. Could there be a more perfect themed day for my family of two sets? Then in September, we decided to go as a family to check it out on First Friday. It was crowded and we didn't last long (I'm not sure I would recommend it, unless you handle crowds better than we do). I always try for a good Culture Pass but have come up short handed. So, when our good friend Rebekah J. sent us an e-mail about how to score free tickets to the Phoenix Children's Museum, naturally my ears perked up. Thanks Bekah for thinking of us.

Ford Motor Company and the Children's Museum of Phoenix have teamed up with Mesa-based United Food Bank on a two-week food drive taking place from Saturday, November 13 to Sunday, November 28, at Valley Ford dealerships.
Phoenix-area Ford dealerships will collect donations of nonperishable food in order to provide nourishment to those in need in our state. The Children's Museum will assist in the drive by providing one free general admission Museum ticket to each person who donates three nonperishable food items at any local Ford dealership. The tickets will be redeemable at the Museum during the month of December 2010.
Valley residents may also drop off three nonperishable food items at the Ford display located at the Arizona International Auto Show at the Phoenix Convention Center from November 25-28.
As part of Ford's Operation Goodwill Phoenix campaign, Ford Motor Company is sponsoring "Ford Technology & Innovation Month" at the Children's Museum of Phoenix during the month of December 2010. In addition to the interactive exhibits, activities and programs will be themed around technology and innovation, and will reflect the enterprising spirit of Henry Ford.
