National Law Enforcement Museum Hosts Free Family Fun Day!

Free admission on Saturday, February 2, 2019 plus K9-focused activities for the whole family.

The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building hosts its first free Family Fun Day on Saturday, February 2 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm with a look into the world of working K9s. As the nation’s only museum dedicated to exploring nearly every facet of American law enforcement, the Museum offers a unique “walk in the shoes” experience with a wide range of content suitable for every family member.

There are many special activities slated for the Museum’s free Family Fun Day, including a K9 Scavenger Hunt and a K9 Activity Cart that lets visitors participate in a K9 breed matching game or smell test. There will also be craft activities for visitors to create their own K9 or Mounted Patrol Horse, as well as design a dog collar or K9 badge. Visitors can also snap a photo in our photo booth using some of our many props. In addition, the free Family Fun Day will offer a book nook and coloring activities in the Learning Center for those visitors seeking a calmer, quieter space.

One featured activity during the free Family Fun Day will be Dog Toys for a Cause. Participants will make dog toys using recycled fabric strips. The completed dog toys will be donated to local animal shelters through a partnership with the Humane Rescue Alliance and Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Virginia. Participants will also be able to make a toy to take home to their own dog.

The Museum also welcomes special guest Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority K9 Russell. K9 Russell and his handler Matthew Werner will be on hand to meet and greet guests throughout Family Fun Day.

“Our Museum offers one of the most family-friendly and unique experiences in the Washington, DC area.” said David L. Brant, executive director of the National Law Enforcement Museum. “By offering free admission during our Family Fun Day, we hope many people who haven’t had the opportunity to visit our Museum will be able to experience it first-hand during this free admission day that’s chocked full of activities for everyone.”   

In addition to the free Family Fun Day for all visitors, the Museum offered free admission to all furloughed federal government employees during the partial government shutdown. Visitors who presented a valid federal government ID enjoyed free admission. The Museum will also offer a $5 discount off its general admission price for all other visitors who present a paid admission ticket from the following Washington, DC-area museums and attractions: ARTECHOUSE, Madame Tussauds DC, Newseum and The Observation Deck at CEB Tower. Please note, this special offer is not valid in combination with other offers or discounts.

Located in downtown Washington, DC, at the Judiciary Square metro station, the Museum is easily accessible by public transportation and convenient to many other museums and attractions in the nation’s capital. The Museum is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm with the last visitor entry at 5 pm. On Thursdays, the Museum is open until 9 pm, allowing visitors to experience the Museum in a less-crowded atmosphere.
