The National Corvette Museum issued a press release in reference to the Government shutdown. The Museum decided to provide free admission to all government employees and up to three people who visit with them. All the employee needs to bring with him or herself is their government ID or badge at the admissions counter.
With that, the Museum will issue them and the people accompanying them an armband for the Museum. We found the Museum’s effort to be a nice offering to government employees many of whom will be going without pay after the partial government shutdown took place more than 30 days ago.
While not all areas of the government are shut down, the Corvette Museum will offer free admission to all government employees. The Museum’s choice to offer free admission to those employees will not change anything about the Museum. It will be business as usual. It’s open daily from 8 am to 5 pm CT.
At first, we thought free admission extended to members of the government during the week. However, with many government workers required to still report for work during the week, it’s probably more likely the individuals who will take advantage of the offering will show up on the weekend with their families.
