I know it's only Tuesday but it's never too soon to start planning for the weekend, particularly when those weekend plans involve a freebie as good as this one:
FREE admission to hundreds of museums across the country as part of Smithsonian magazine's Free Museum Day.
So here's your chance to go exploring at Tryon Palace in New Bern or check out the Miracle on the Hudon Airbus on exhibit at Carolina's Aviation Museum in Charlotte.
Or stick closer to home and visit the Ava Gardner Museum in Smithfield or take the kids to Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh.
All for FREE.
