I am excited to announce today that the Museum will now offer free general admission for all youth 17 and under, something we have quietly been testing at the Museum since this past Spring. We first began offering free admission to school-age youth in the fall of 2014, when we granted free admission to Denver Public Schools students as an inaugural cultural partner of Mayor Michael Hancock’s MY Denver Card program.
Like many other efforts preceding it, this new initiative is designed to make the most impactful moments at the Museum more accessible and more meaningful. We hope the results surprise and delight everyone in our community to whom we owe our proud participation in Denver’s vibrant civic and cultural dialogue. More information about our history of outreach and accessibility efforts is available in our online press room.
To celebrate with the community, the Museum will serve free ice cream Friday, August 21, in the Museum’s forecourt from 1 to 3 p.m. (1250 Bannock Street, while supplies last). Admission to the Museum will also be free for all guests throughout the day, 10 a.m.–8 p.m. Please join us!
Finally, I am also happy to announce that by popular demand we have decided to extend through the end of the year our free Friday evenings, during which all guests receive free admission 5–8 p.m. Friday has become the Museum’s busiest day of the week since Friday evenings became free on January 30.
Thank you for your continued support of the Clyfford Still Museum. See you in the galleries!
