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.
