growing up 

@[email protected] I grew up in the countryside. Our expectation was to visit a museum 6 times during the 9/10 years of school.
But when I moved to Copenhagen and my children started school, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that in the first year, they visit a new museum or event every week! So the National Museum, Museum of Geology, the Naval Museum, important landmarks, the Zoo - so whenever I go anywhere in the city with them now, they have been everywhere. That is just brilliant.

@mjjzf @hcs That is great! Schools here are so lacking of funding that school outings inevitably turn into fundraisers. Unbelievably stupid decisions by our local governments. They refuse to budget for education.

@aeveltstra With us the budget aspect is simplified by the fact that the city owns a lot of the museums.

@mjjzf Surely that helps. Other costs to consider: extra helpers for the kids (usually "volunteering" moms), transportation, food, tour guides.
