Opening Doors Art Exhibit and "Pay As You Will Day"

Wednesday, April 26
9 am - 7:30 pm

On April 26, the Children's Museum will unveil a poignant public art exhibition, Opening Doors, that celebrates our diverse community. The exhibit features a series of 11 open doors that form a ribbon at the Museum entrance with a message of "all are welcome here!"

To kick off the exhibit opening, the Museum will host a “Pay As You Will Day” on Wednesday, April 26, where families can come to the Museum from 9 am - 7:30 pm and choose their own admission price.

At 8:45 am, everyone is invited to join us for the exhibit ribbon cutting with special guest, Mayor Michael B. Hancock! (No rsvp required, just show up! More details to come.)
