Local Museum raises funds and hosts special events in celebration of the holiday season
Jacksonville, Fla. — December 1, 2023 — The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) today announced its second MOSH Wonderful Time of the Year campaign, featuring special promotions, events and donation opportunities.
The initiative began in 2020 as a way for the cultural institution to help make up for funds lost during the COVID-19 pandemic and to support the Museum’s ongoing efforts to serve the community through in-person and virtual programming.
This year, the Museum will once again serve as an official drop-off location for Toys for Tots. Visitors can bring new toys or books to donate to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation now through December 9th. Additionally, visitors can directly support the Museum this holiday season through its Pay It Forward membership program, an initiative that launched on Giving Tuesday and offers individuals and families an opportunity to purchase a Family Membership for just $25 that will be gifted to local families facing financial barriers.
The Museum will also host holiday themed programming during the campaign, including:
As a special treat this holiday season, the MOSH is offering $1 admission for children aged 3 – 12 with the purchase of a full-priced adult entry ticket throughout the month of December. Up to five children’s tickets at the discounted rate can be purchased per adult ticket here.
“The team at MOSH is looking forward to finishing the year with events that engage the community, no matter how old they are,” said Bruce Fafard, CEO of MOSH. “We hope that visitors find an event that’s a perfect fit for them, and also a reason to return to MOSH next year. This new partnership with Vagabond Flea gives the community a fresh perspective of what MOSH can be. We want them to not only learn about science and history, but the makers and shakers of the city they live in now.”
