On January 5th and 6th, Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum will adjust admission prices based on the needs of visitors as part of the museum’s 8th annual “Pay What You Can” Weekend. Instead of the standard admission and parking fees, guests are encouraged to pay any amount of money they can afford.
“The holiday season can be tough on the family budget,” Patriots Point Executive Director Mac Burdette said. “We want those who live in the Charleston area and who drive by our ships every day to have a chance to tour the museum without having to worry about their financial situations. This is a great way for us to give back to the community that supports us all year. If circumstances make it where a visitor can’t pay anything at all, that is perfectly fine.”
The standard museum admission rate is $24 for adults and parking is $5. During the “Pay What You Can” Weekend, visitors can pay whatever they feel comfortable paying for both admission and parking. Every ticket will include all three historic vessels, the Medal of Honor Museum, and the Vietnam Experience Exhibit. As always, those who are active duty military in uniform and children under six are free.
Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is an agency of the state of South Carolina but does not receive appropriated funding. It is open daily from 9 am to 6:30 pm. For more information, visit www.patriotspoint.org.
