The 2019 federal government shutdown is entering its 25th day. This has been the longest one in history and it has been causing a lot of strain. The national parks are having problems with trash, multiple agencies aren't operational, and people are going without paychecks.

Over 800,000 people are being impacted by this, and The Science Museum of Minnesota is trying to be a bright spot for them. Beginning Tuesday, January 15, furloughed federal employees will receive free combination exhibit gallery and Omnitheater admission for themselves and up to three guests.

They posted on their website saying:

We hope that our small gesture will provide them a little relief in the midst of the stress of being furloughed for an extended period of time. We hope they’ll take a break from the worry and spend a day at the Science Museum making memories.

To take advantage of this free admission offer, visitors must show a valid government identification card at the Box Office of the Science Museum.

Thank you Science Museum of Minnesota for trying to spread a little positivity during a trying time! What a great gesture!
