My kids have always enjoyed visiting the SCI. This year we bought a membership because of the Reciprocal Program and used our SCI membership for free admission to 5 other museums we visited. Most museums/zoos offer a reciprocal program but the benefits differ from one program to another, so read the fine print carefully. However, our SCI saved us $$$ this year!
