Free Museum Entry For Furloughed Federal Workers

As the Federal Government Shutdown in the United States enters a third week, hundreds of thousands of federal workers are feeling the financial pinch.

With stories of unpaid bills and calling mortgage companies filling the news, many are looking for a way to do something to help those effected by the shutdown.

This week both the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and The Newseum announced that they would offer free entry to furloughed federal workers.

In order to receive free entry, federal employees must bring a government identification card, and present it at the ticket booth.

Could your museum offer free entry to furloughed federal workers? Are you doing this already?
