The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry (CML) invites grandparents in the Charleston area to celebrate a re-do of National Grandparents Day at the Children’s Museum with free admission for all grandparents. Due to Hurricane Irma, CML rescheduled the annual celebration of the holiday from September. All grandparents will receive free admission to CML on Sunday, December 10, from 12pm – 5pm.
“National Grandparents Day is focused on honoring grandmothers and grandfathers and giving them the opportunity to make memories with their grandchildren, so we didn’t want Hurricane Irma to keep our families from spending time together. Here at CML, we understand that the brain develops rapidly during the very early years, building the foundation for cognitive and character skills that are necessary for success in life. Through play, grandparents can see their grandchildren’s social, communication and problem-solving skills strengthen,” Nichole Myles, CML’s Executive Director, said. “We invite the whole family to come out and celebrate!”
Grandparents and their grandchildren will have plenty of play to choose from at CML. Grandchildren can paint a family portrait to commemorate the day in the Art Room. Make it a family affair in WaterWise, an exhibit all about water, filled with rapids to maneuver and boats to race! No pre-registration is needed for grandparents to receive free admission this Sunday. All grown-ups must be accompanied by a child for entrance to CML. Regular admission rates apply to all others.
CML also celebrates grandparents year-round by offering them a special membership package: a Grandparent Membership, $75 per year, includes unlimited free admission the Museum for two grandparents and all of their grandchildren.
