A NIGHT OUT FOR YOU AND YOUR KIDS!
Are you dying to finally have that date night you’ve always promised yourselves? Have you ever wished there was a place you could drop off your kids right on the Downtown Mall so you could go to dinner or Fridays After Five? Has your child ever wished they could play in the Virginia Discovery Museum after hours when the crowds have dispersed?
Well, guess what? You can! As requested by our visitors, the Virginia Discovery Museum now has a Date Night Drop Off Program! Every Friday from 5:30pm to 8pm throughout July and August, you can drop off your 3-8 year old while you enjoy all the amenities the Downtown Mall has to offer. Sip some wine over dinner, go shopping, grab a gelato, or catch the free show at Fridays After Five. The Museum has got childcare covered.
And it’s so much better than a babysitter! We keep groups small, so kids have tons of room to discover the Museum, and each week there’s a different educational theme and craft to make during the evening’s program:
July 9th – Rousseau Jungles
July 16th – Glow in the Dark Night
July 23rd – Byzantine Art
July 30th – A Night in Egypt
August 6th – Medieval Times
August 13th – Arrrr Matey!
August 20th – Pointillism
August 27th – Bead Making
A healthy dinner of cheese pizza, carrot sticks, and fruit juice is included in the registration fee, as well as lots of free time to play in the Museum. Sign up today and have that date night you’ve always wanted – the Museum will take care of the rest!
Fridays 5:30-8pm, Ages 3-8
(we request your 3-year-old be fully potty trained)
