Smart Destinations Partner Boston Children’s Museum Turns 100

Smart Destinations’ valued attraction partner Boston Children’s Museum celebrates its centennial this October with festivities, special events, and an exciting after-party.

One of Smart Destinations’ most popular family-friendly attraction partners, Boston Children’s Museum has been an iconic part of the city for a century. With its instantly recognizable giant Hood® milk bottle overlooking the Fort Point Channel, this Seaport institution is beloved by children and families from Boston and across the country and can be visited with the Go Boston Card. This October, Boston Children’s Museum will be celebrating its 100th birthday with a variety of special activities and events for families.

Boston Children’s Museum is celebrating this milestone birthday with, among other things, a Big Cake Tour that has been visiting different Boston area neighborhoods all summer while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for children. The last stop on the Big Cake Tour is a return home on the Museum’s Birthday – Saturday, October 5, 2013.

The Big Cake Tour is a part of an entire birthday weekend of exciting events, from October 4 – October 6. Highlights include popular musical performances, visiting artists and theatrical performances, and several hands-on educational activities for adults and children. For complete information on events and activities, consult Boston Children’s Museum Birthday Celebration schedule.

“Boston Children’s Museum is pleased to welcome visitors to our Centennial Celebration. A great way to save at many of the city’s cultural attractions including the Museum is by investing in a Go Boston Card from Smart Destinations,” said Jo-Anne Baxter, Director of Public Relations at Boston Children’s Museum.

In honor of this special centennial celebration, Smart Destinations will be releasing the Fall Family Fun Pass to allow families to enjoy Boston Children’s Museum as part of their budget-friendly Boston vacation. The Fall Family Fun Pass includes discounted admission to Boston Children’s Museum, as well as other family-favorite attractions like the Museum of Science, the Boston Duck Tour, and the Skywalk Observatory.

“Boston Children’s Museum is among the best family-friendly attractions in Boston and we’re so excited for them to celebrate such a landmark event,” said Judy Gauthier, Regional Director with Smart Destinations. “We hope our visitors to Boston take advantage of this special weekend and include the Museum in their vacation plans.”

In addition to the Fall Family Fun Pass, visiting families could also choose to add Boston Children’s Museum to a customized Go Select Boston Pass to suit their ideal vacation itinerary. Located in the Seaport District of Boston, the Museum is near several of family-friendly attractions from cruises and tours to other cultural institutions. The nearby Institute of Contemporary Art has a number of kid-friendly events like family art-making workshops and artistic “play dates.” Across the Fort Point Channel and north along the Harbor front is the New England Aquarium, a perennially popular attraction for children and families.
