As part of its year-long centennial celebration, the Cleveland Foundation is giving a gift each month to the community. This month, that gift involves a free weekend of entertainment highlighting the North Coast Harbor.
The Foundation has announced all-day special family programming at the Great Lakes Science Center on February 22 and at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on February 23.
Great Lakes Science Center's free admission on Saturday, Feb. 22, will include live science demonstrations every hour, capsule chats in the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, and a chance to see the Science Center's new exhibition, Wildlife Rescue, which opened Jan. 25. Guests will also have an opportunity in the morning and afternoon to meet NASA astronaut and native Clevelander Dr. Don Thomas, and hear about his flight aboard the space shuttle Discovery during its STS-70 mission. In addition, the first 1,800 visitors to the Science Center will receive vouchers to see one of five OMNIMAX movie showings playing throughout the day.
On Sunday, Feb. 23, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum's free admission will include special movies throughout the day, such as a documentary on the Beatles first U.S. visit and a behind-the-scenes film on the young Rolling Stones. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to meet 2014 Rock Hall Inductee Vini Lopez of the E Street Band, who will be participating in a special Hall of Fame Series conversation. This will also be a last chance to catch the exhibit, Rolling Stones, 50 Years of Satisfaction, which ends March 2.
