NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk's Stepping Stones Museum for Children is offering half-price admission at certain times and on certain days this winter.
For a limited time, Stepping Stones is offering half-priced admission after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays. In addition, visitors can take part in the museum’s new series of afternoon drop-in programs.
"Now is an exciting time at Stepping Stones Museum for Children," representatives said. "For the first time since the museum’s 22,000-square-foot expansion and grand re-opening in 2010, Stepping Stones will introduce two new major exhibits."
On Feb. 14, the museum will celebrate the debut of Express Yourself, an exhibit that focuses on social-emotional learning and an updated and expanded national traveling version of its award-winning Healthyville exhibit.
"The two new experiences include play-filled activities and educational messaging that foster learning by doing," representatives said. "All of this activity is part of the Stepping Stones Museum for Children’s commitment to growing its Healthy Children, Healthy Communities initiative, which has promoted healthy living for children, families and communities since its launch in 2006."
