Kick-off the New Year with the Monroe Museums this January
Monroe Museum Month is January 1-31, and they are celebrating with a Passport Contest, Photo Contest, and special events all month long.
Explore the museums in Monroe this January 1-31, and get your passport stamped each time you visit a participating museum. When you get to your 6th location, you will receive a gift and your name will be entered in a drawing for the Grand Prize Basket. But don’t stop there. Each museum you visit after that will count as an additional entry in the drawing! Click HERE to download a passport or pick one up at any participating museum.
Take photos of your adventures along the way and be sure to enter the Photo Contest. Just send the photo, your name and contact info, and the name of the museum where the photo was taken to firstname.lastname@example.org. One photo will be chosen as the grand prize winner, along with one winner chosen per museum.
