$1 Friday Nights is one of the Museum’s most beloved and enduring programs. Spanning four decades, this popular evening attracts over 55,000 people each year, 10% of Boston Children’s Museum’s total visitation, and provides access to the Museum for everyone, underscoring the on-going need for affordable educational opportunities for young learners throughout the Commonwealth.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the TJX Companies, Inc. as our new $1 Friday Night sponsor,” said Carole Charnow, President & CEO. “With their support, we can continue this popular 40+ year’s tradition of access to one of Boston’s treasured destinations. This sponsorship ensures that families of all means have an opportunity to visit the Museum and experience hands-on engagement and playful learning at an affordable price. Also, like many of our visitors, I am a frequent customer of all of the TJX stores, and I am excited by the possibility of the many ways we can bring more fun and value to our visitors!”
Examples of $1 Friday Night programs include:
- STEAM Interactive Learning – Problem solving in a hands-on way that emphasizes open-ended discovery and experimentation in science, technology, engineering, art/design and math.
- School Readiness and School Success – Activities to help the youngest learners build skills for school. The Museum’s Countdown to Kindergarten is a model classroom that invites children and their parents to have a typical kindergarten experience.
- Pop-up Play Night – Imagine, create, and wonder! Construct a cardboard creation, make a fantastic fort, or add to a giant tapescape. Play is powerful – experiment with familiar and unfamiliar materials, and try something new.
- Kids Jam – DJ‐lead family dance party that gets kids of all ages moving together and enjoying physical activity.
