Entries for the Night at the Museum giveaway are closed. Congratulations to Elise Crane Derby for submitting the winning entry. Thank you to everyone who submitted such terrific museum selections! My list of places I absolutely MUST VISIT has grown tremendously.
...I am giving away a "Night at the Museum 2" gift basket, consisting of:
- Family 4 pack of IMAX tickets to Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
- $25 McDonald’s Arch Card
- Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian IMAX movie posters
- Glow-in-the-dark Character Stickers, Balsa Wood Airplane Glider and Mini-flashlights for the kids!
DISCLOSURE: I have not yet seen this movie, but am receiving two tickets to view it at our local IMAX after it opens on May 22nd. I am happy to promote it, because Megan and I both LOVED the original and this was already on our short list of films we just HAD to see this summer.
The original movie took place at New York's famed Museum of Natural History (which our family had the pleasure of visiting three years ago, when we went to Manhattan to celebrate my (cough cough!) 50th birthday.
The sequel - which again stars Ben Stiller and features many of the same characters who were so delightful in the original (Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, etc), is set in the Smithsonian Institute, and includes new historical characters played by major film stars (like Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart).
To enter: I want to know about YOUR favorite museum for an outing with your kids (or grandkids, or just for you!) Leave a comment on this post naming your museum, where it is and why it's your favorite - or link to a post of your own - and you'll be entered in a random drawing for the basket.
NOTE: The new version of Typepad Comments does not give me a way to email commenters to notify them that they may have won the prize! PLEASE follow up your comment with a direct email to me at socalmom a socalmom dot net. (And please do so if you are one of the 14 people who has already left a comment. THANK YOU.)
The film opens on Friday, May 22nd - so I'll only be taking entries until then and will announce the winner over the weekend.
