There’s no school on Thanksgiving, or the day after. Thanksgiving Day might be taken care of, but what to do with the kids on Friday?

Well, the Children’s Museum will be hosting a holiday open house, with free admission from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. That’s one idea, and thanks go to the Plum Creek Foundation for making it possible.

Another reason to stop by the Children’s Museum might be to pick up an all day pass or two for the little ones on your holiday shopping list.

Both the Children’s Museum and A Carousel for Missoula are offering the Play All Day Pass, which comes in the form of a $7 wristband. It gets the wearer unlimited rides on the carousel for one day plus admission to the museum.

The carousel and the Children’s Museum are located just across a parking lot from each other, so the pairing makes sense on a number of levels. You can buy the passes at either venue.

“Kids love the carousel and they love the museum!” Children’s Museum manager Heidi Kendall said. “Since we’re so close together in downtown Missoula, we thought it would be a great way to make it extra easy for families to enjoy both attractions at once! Happy holidays, Missoula!”
