Nearly one full month after the partial government shutdown began, no clear end seems to be in sight. Across the Country restaurants and businesses are offering discounts or free admission for furloughed federal workers.
In Sacramento, the Crocker Art Museum is doing the same. Admission is now free to furloughed federal employees during the partial shutdown, the museum announced Thursday.
"In times that are uncertain, the Crocker serves the community in especially meaningful ways by bringing people together through art, refreshing their spirits, and affording them unique opportunities for inspiration," said the Museum's Director and CEO, Lial Jones. "We are pleased to offer the rich experience of art to federal employees and welcome those who are impacted on professional as well as personal levels by the shutdown."
HOW TO RECEIVE FREE ADMISSION:
To get in for free, visitors need to bring in and show their current federal ID or badge to the museum's admission desk staff. For a list of exhibitions currently open, click HERE.
