Spring Break Admission Promotion and Eclipse Weekend Specials at the National Museum of the Great Lakes

With the buds popping and temps rising, the National Museum of the Great Lakes is delighted to announce its Spring Break Admission Promotion, inviting families to embark on an enriching adventure together. Now through April 14, visitors who pre-purchase adult tickets online will receive a complimentary youth ticket (ages 6 to 17).

“With school out and the weather warming, there’s no better time to explore the engaging exhibits at our museum,” said Ellen Kennedy, Director of Museum Operations. “Dive into the rich history of the Great Lakes region and create lasting memories with your loved ones.”

But the excitement doesn’t stop there! From April 6 to April 8, coinciding with the Total Solar Eclipse weekend, the museum has additional specials in store. In addition to our Spring Break BOGO offer, the first 100 visitors will receive complimentary eclipse viewing glasses

“We’re eagerly anticipating the buzz surrounding the total eclipse on our side of the river,” added Kennedy. “In addition to our weekend specials, we’re thrilled to join the Glass City Metropark’s eclipse party with Great Lakes themed activities. It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the awe-inspiring beauty of nature and the rich heritage of our region under the celestial spectacle of the eclipse.”

For those considering becoming museum members, Eclipse weekend presents an enticing opportunity. Purchase a membership during this time (April 6-8) and enjoy an extra 10% off your first museum store purchase, totaling 20% in savings.

Also, through the month of March, we’re celebrating Women’s History Month with a curated selection of special books and media available in our Museum Store. Join us as we honor the remarkable contributions of women to the Great Lakes region throughout history.

In addition to our specials, we are proud to participate in Jūpmode’s Here for Good initiative, supporting the National Museum of the Great Lakes through the sale of limited edition tees and crews. Featuring a custom design by Paul LaMarre, Jr. showcasing our esteemed Museum Ship Col. James M. Schoonmaker, these shirts and crews are available for purchase until March 31. With $10 from each shirt and $15 from each sweatshirt sale directly benefiting the museum, it’s a stylish way to show your support.
