Kohl Children’s Museum is ringing in the New Year with two Times Square-style parties designed specifically for young children with celebrations at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31, when the Museum will transform an entire wing into a huge New Year’s Eve celebration, complete with giant confetti drops at a mock midnight. Children and their families will enjoy live musical performances, horn and party hat making, parachute play and more.
The morning celebration from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. is geared towards the younger patrons (1-3 years old) with a children’s concert featuring Jeanie B. From 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., the party is geared towards an older group (4-8 years old), and will have a DJ and dance party. Stylists from KidSnips will also be on site to do free party hair styling and temporary hair coloring. All regular exhibits will also be open.
“New Year’s Eve is an exciting time for families and our special celebration allows guests to experience the ultimate celebration to ring in the New Year together,” says Museum President and CEO Sheridan Turner. “2014 is going to be a momentous year at the Museum, with new exhibits and events throughout the next 12 months that we can’t wait to unveil and share with all of our dedicated patrons.”
Tickets are $24 per person; Kohl Children's Museum members can purchase advance tickets for the discounted price of $14. The Museum will be closed to the public on this date, other than to ticketed individuals. www.kohlchidlrensmuseum.org/nye.
