Great Lakes Science Center Welcomes Summer with Discount Offers and More

Great Lakes Science Center is gearing up for summer with new discount offers, movies in the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater and the seasonal re-opening of the Steamship William G. Mather.

The new discount offers go into effect on Monday, May 1, the same day the museum’s summer operating hours return for the season: Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Beginning May 1, active and retired military members with proper ID will receive half-price admission. The discount will apply to their immediate family members as well, including their spouse, children and parents. Senior citizens age 65 and older will receive $2 off the price of admission, and general admission tickets purchased online at least a day in advance of visitation will automatically receive a $1 discount on general admission or $2 off a combination ticket with a DOME Theater movie.

Guests can tour the Mather, a restored 618-foot historic ship, and see what life was like aboard a working Great Lakes freighter. The Mather opens for the season Saturday, May 6 and is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. In June, the ship begins its full operating schedule of Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.

Also this month, the opening phase of the Science Center’s “brickbuster” LEGO exhibition “Build It! Engineering fun, one brick at a time, presented by ArcelorMittal,” will close on Sunday, May 14 in order to be re-set for Phase II — “Explore It!” which opens May 27.
