CLEVELAND, June 3, 2024: Great Lakes Science Center is proud to partner with the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Supporting Foundation to present guests with eight opportunities to experience the museum for FREE through the end of 2024.

A generous $200,000 grant from the Mandel Supporting Foundation will fund eight Mandel Free Days which include free general admission for guests of all ages. The first four dates, subject to change, will be Sunday, June 23; Monday, July 15; Sunday, August 4; and Sunday, August 18. The remaining dates will be announced later this summer.

“The Mandel Foundation looks to increase community access to prominent institutions like the Great Lakes Science Center,” said Dr. Jehuda Reinharz, President and CEO of the Mandel Foundation. “Our hope is that the Mandel Free Days will allow Northeast Ohio residents to engage in educational experiences that cultivate curiosity and encourage critical thinking.”

“We are extremely grateful for the foundation’s support of eight free admission days,” said Science Center President and CEO Dr. Kirsten Ellenbogen. “This gift demonstrates the foundation’s commitment to providing educational opportunities for all and inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals.”

General admission at the Science Center includes the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, the Polymer Funhouse (for those 7 and younger), special programming, and hundreds of hands-on and interactive science exhibits.
