Museum Is Free For Mother's Day

 Permanent link

The Museum is free for mothers who visit with their families on Mother’s Day. That’s right, free. Zero. Zip. Nada.mother's day 2

But wait, there’s more.

On Mother’s Day there will be five Women in American Jewish History tours available at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. on a first-come-first-served basis. Women highlighted in the tour include Abigail Franks, Rebecca Gratz, Henrietta Szold, Emma Goldman, and Betty Friedan.

And this is really cool. You can record a special Mother’s Day thank you in the Museum’s “It’s Your Story”™ video recording booth. You will be asked to finish the sentence, “I have my mother to thank for….” You can then share the video online or on your Facebook page, or email to your siblings and make them feel guilty for not being with your mom on Mother’s Day. 

Also, all mothers will receive a boutonniere when arriving at the Museum.

Hope to see  you here – it beats a card and flowers, doesn’t it?
