AETN Spring Break Family Fun Days at the Museum of Discovery

Do you have a little one who loves Cat in the Hat or Clifford the Big Red Dog? Then we have exciting news! This Spring Break, make plans to dress up as your favorite PBS KIDS character and join us – and some very special guests – for activities and adventures at the Museum of Discovery! Museum visitors will have the chance to meet and take photos with the Cat in the Hat, Thursday, March 21, and with Clifford the Big Red Dog Friday, March 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. 

We’ll start each day with a free character meet-and-greet and photos in the museum’s lobby, but the fun doesn’t end there! If your family likes, you can choose to pay regular admission prices and continue the fun inside the Museum. Current exhibits, including Grossology and Amazing You, and permanent features like Discovery Hall, Room to Grow and the Tinkering Studio promise that tons of dynamic, fun and … slightly gross … learning opportunities are there to be had!

And, if you’re an AETN or Museum of Discovery member, we have another fun treat! Email us, and we’ll mail you an invitation to a special members’ preview night featuring both characters. Just bring your invitation and join us Wednesday, March 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
