Free Admission for Dads on Father's Day

PHILADELPHIA, June 2, 2016

With Father’s Day just around the corner, many moms and children are searching for the perfect present or fun activity to make dad’s day special. Baseball games, brand new ties, breakfast in bed, all are good options, but there is another idea for anyone still in need of a last-minute gift.


The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is celebrating fathers with a special Father’s Day promotion, where dads get in free with one paying child on Sunday, June 19. Kids can take dad to naturalist presentations featuring live animals and specimens, explore The Big Dig in Dinosaur Hall, and stroll through the Butterflies! exhibit. Visit to find more activities and online admission discounts for the rest of the family.


Founded in 1812, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is a leading natural history museum dedicated to advancing research, education, and public engagement in biodiversity and environmental science.
