Kansas Children’s Discovery Center giving free admission to furloughed government employees


The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is giving back to families who have been out of work during the government shutdown.

The discovery center is giving free admission to federal government employees until the end of the month. People can bring up to three family members during regular hours.

The center said the free days give people a chance to get away from the hardships, and have fun with their families.

“We know that play is helpful, for families, we know it is key for them when they are going through difficult times,” said Director of Marketing, Laura Burton. “And we just want to make sure we’re here, and we’re letting them know we’re available. One in six of our visitors here at the discovery center, every year, get in free or low cost admission because of need. And this is another organization, another group of people who we found, and felt, needed help and needed support.”

The discovery center asks that you bring a government ID for the free admission.
