It’s shaping up to be a *HOT* summer here in Montgomery County, so we’ve put together a list of our favorite local museums that are as cool as they are cool .
We’ve personally visited every last one of these and our enthusiasm for them abounds.
I officially want to be a volunteer docent when I grow up . Please find one when you visit these museums and have them show you around. Their knowledge is invaluable.
