Cox sponsors free admission at museums

In celebration of World Kindness Day on Friday, Nov. 13, Cox Communications is underwriting the cost of admission to three local museums throughout the month of November.

Free Admission Fridays is offered at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Boulder City, Clark County Museum in Henderson and Las Vegas Natural History Museum on Fridays Nov. 13, 20 and 27.

“We’re sharing some kindness with our great cultural and educational museums that have felt the economic impact of COVID-19 from closures to guest limitations and cancellation of fundraising events,” said Michael F. Bolognini, vice president and Las Vegas market leader. “Our Free Admission Fridays are designed to give back while giving our community the opportunity to explore these local treasures on us.”

Nevada State Railroad Museum, 601 Yucca St., tells the history of railroads in Southern Nevada and is home to the Nevada Southern Railway. Admission to the museum includes a ride on the train, which will depart at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. Visit nevadasouthern.com or call 702-486-5933 for details.
