Center in the Square and its partner organizations are excited to announce the creation of the Center Pass. The Center Pass is a discounted joint ticket for all the museums that call Center in the Square home; the Harrison Museum of African American Culture, the History Museum of Western Virginia, and the Science Museum of Western Virginia. Patrons can buy an adult pass (18 +) for $20.00 and a child pass (4 +) for $15.00. Worried you can’t do it all in one day? No problem, just hold on to your pass and bring it back within six months to be redeemed at the museum(s) you were unable to visit the first time.
The Center Pass also extends to other organizations. Mill Mountain Theatre, Opera Roanoke, the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, and the Roanoke Ballet Theatre will be offering discounted tickets to people who purchase a Center Pass. Patrons should present their Center Pass to qualify for a discounted ticket. Some restrictions apply.
The Center Pass will be available at the McDonald’s Box Office starting October 1st. Single tickets for each of the museums will still be available through the McDonald’s Box Office.
Center in the Square and its partner organizations are now offering a deeply discounted joint ticket for every second Sunday of the month. Join us on September 14 for the first ever Sunday Fun Day! All day long (1 pm to 5 pm), patrons can buy an adult ticket (18 +) for $15.00 and a children’s ticket (4 +) for $10.00.
To celebrate the first ever Sunday Fun Day, there will be free hotdogs and drinks in the Weiner Stand for the first 250 ticket holders and free popcorn on the roof for all. Center will also provide packets of koi food and have feeding times on the roof for children to feed the koi fish.
