A day at the museum!

A day at the museum!

On Saturday, hundreds of museums around the country will open their doors for free as part of the Smithsonian's Museum Day!

Earlier this year, we did a virtual field trip with David Baldacci at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to celebrate the release of The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers: Day of Doom so we know first-hand how amazing a day at the museum can be!

The book requires Dan and Amy to visit the National Museum of American History to check out a compass used by Lewis and Clark. It was only with the help of a museum expert that they were able to get vital information in their race against the Vespers.

That's not the only book to come out recently set in a museum, though!:

For a full list of the museums participating, check out the Museum Day webpage.

In the meantime, what are your favorite books set in a museum?
