WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Once the government shutdown, the staff at the Children's Museum of Wilmington knew they had to help.

They are offering free admission for those government employees who have been furloughed. They are also offering free admission for military personal and their families.

"As a museum we were trying to figure out how we could help with the shutdown. We decided to give them a chance to de-stress and have some time to play with their kids for free," said Logan White, Director of Development and Marketing at the Children's Museum.

The Children's Museum of Wilmington features all types of educational games and activities for kids.
