CLEVELAND (April 17, 2018) – Flowers and candy are nice, but what moms really want for Mother’s Day is the chance to spend quality time making memories with family. Great Lakes Science Center is making it easy to plan a special day for mom with a Stay Curious weekend Mother’s Day edition half price admission deal!

On Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 13 from noon to 5 p.m. all moms (or aunts, grandmas, sisters or any other special adult woman in your life) will receive half off the price of any general admission or combo admission ticket.

Guests of all ages can check out amazing science demos, the Strange Science Big Science Show and hands-on activities including a special BASF Kids’ Lab: Happy Hands Workshop where guests will use common ingredients to make their own hand lotion and explore how oil and water actually can mix, and a Wonders of Water activity sponsored by the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District.
