I respond with:
This is partially true and accurate. What happened was some of the museums actually had EEC on their menu of tariffs, so I had to come home and research it. Later on, I did find other museums who use EEA. Then I thought maybe, just maybe there was a problem with alphabetic transposing of letters, but I do write my notes carefully when I am in museums for the very fact that I don’t want to return immediately. My notes are clearly EEC and EEA.
That said, the reason I don’t use Internet research and DO go to every single museum, restaurant, etc, is because I have found websites that clearly show they have not been updated since 2004 or earlier. This may be true with the admission rate cards they are still using. Who knows? Either way, it was educational for me and hopefully for readers too.
Thank you for commenting so I could clarify.
Another realization: After writing this, I went to another museum. Their discount is for anyone from an EU country, but excludes EEA or EEC. They are all claim this is due to being state funded, yet the differences from one set of museum regulations to another is totally perplexing.
